Napa Valley Tasting Barn Website Accessibility — What You Should Know

​Napa Valley Tasting Barn understands that the website must be accessible to all people.

WCAG 2.1 Updates Are Currently Being Made

Substantial progress has been made toward accessibility, however, we recognize there may be areas for improvement. The improvements we have already made will help all users, including those that rely on assistive technology, such as screen readers.

We are currently partnered with external WCAG experts to make the site more inclusive — implementing site-wide accessibility changes. This intensive work is being done in phases, and is still in progress. We appreciate your patience. Our goal is to have the majority of the WCAG 2.1 improvements completed by September 1, 2021.
