We are excited to welcome entrepreneur and pastry Chef Kara Haspel Lind, founder of Kara’s Cupcakes and now, Bar Lucia, to our Vine Trail Membership Partner Program.

While we’ve known Kara for her delightful assembly of cupcakes, cookies and cakes, she has expanded her passion for creating celebratory moments with her new concept, Bar Lucia. Situated adjacent to Kara’s Cupcakes in Oxbow Public Market. Bar Lucia features rosé and sparkling wines paired with a menu of seasonal salads, panini sandwiches and small bites. Kara’s desire to connect people through food, wine, and her much-loved sweets was the inspiration to create this destination culinary experience inside Napa’s Oxbow Public Market. (Due to covid-19, Bar Lucia offers food and drinks to go, or limited seating on the outside terrace).

VINE TRAIL Members enjoy 10% off any food item at Bar Lucia and 10% off a dozen cupcakes Kara's Cupcakes.



Named for her great grandmother, Angela Luci and her daughter, Lucia, Bar Lucia honors the memorable traditions passed down through five generations of incredible women in Kara’s family who gave her the courage to pursue a creative passion and bring it to fruition. Angela Luci, ready to start anew, left her Italian family behind to arrive in Ellis Island in 1920 during the second wave of the 1918 Pandemic. 

“I can’t help but think of the irony of how 100 years later,  I am navigating my way through these unchartered waters,  opening a new business during a global pandemic. While launching what I consider to be a very special and personal endeavor for me offers a ton of challenges, I am optimistic that our community will appreciate a moment here with us either at the bar or ordering food and wine to go,” stated Haspel Lind.  “After all,” she continues, “sipping rosé offers a moment of sunshine and sweetness that I know we all need at this time.”
