As Festival del Sole marks its tenth season in the Napa Valley, media coverage of the "celebration of the art of life" has been extensive. Here is a sampling of articles from around the country.

Haute Living's Olivia Hsu Decker offers a full round up of the 2015 festival, calling it "by far my best festival experience, compared to the world-renowned festivals at Salzburg, Aix-en-Provence, Aspen and a few others I’ve attended."

Jennifer Boden, of KRON4, gives the festival a detailed write-up, saying that it "offers amazing opportunities to sample some of the world’s best food and wine as part of a larger experience..." and then goes on to review several events in great detail. In the end, she concludes that "there’s no substitute for actually attending. The experience is both enlightening and immersive, offering delights to satisfy every sense." 

In her festival round-up article for Forbes, Leslie Werner notes that Festival del Sole "attracts a panoply of well known artists"... "the settings are magnificent"... and "the lineup of performers is world class..."

L. Pierce Carson raves about the return performance at Festival del Sole of Bouchaine Young Artist Stephen Waarts.

The Napa Valley Register's Pierce Carson offers a review of Moscow Nights at Castello di Amorosa, saying "[it] took us from concert hall to the steppes of Russia and back again. It was... a memorable Russian party, one where some of us familiar with the haunting Moscow nights tune could actually sing along. The whole affair was 'otlitschno.'"

"In its closing concert," writes GB Opera Magazine, "Napa Valley Festival del Sole pulled out all the stops with not one, but two headliners: violinist Midori and bass Ildar Abdrazakov. The two gave contrasting, but equally masterful performances."

"Like a fine vintage wine," write Catherine Bigelow of the San Francisco Chronicle, "the Festival del Sole has blossomed into a mighty summer music series celebrating the enological and cultural bounty of Napa Valley." The article looks at the history and achievements of the festival and includes interviews with Richard Walker, Maria Manetti Shrem, and Darioush Khaledi.
