Heather Sandy Hebert, author of
The New Architecture of Wine: 25 Spectacular California Wineries
with Bob Torres, Principal & Vice Chairman, TFE and Erin Martin of Erin Martin Design.

Twelve of the 25 wineries in Heather’s new book are in Napa Valley, including TFE. Each was built or, in the case of Joseph Phelps Vineyards, renovated in the last ten years.

Please join us to hear from Bob what TFE envisioned for its new winery campus, how Erin interpreted the interiors, and from Heather the how and why of choosing wineries for her book.

Celebrate the sophisticated blend of agriculture and style that defines California wine country.”

As wine tourism has increased, California vintners have embraced the call to create splendid spaces where visitors can taste their unique varieties and enjoy conversation about wine.

Please join us in the Tasting Room of TFE at 6:00 pm for a glass of wine and a chance to tour the adjacent winery with Bob Torres. The Hospitality Center next door opens at 6:30 pm with wine and small bites to be followed by the evening’s program at 7:00 pm.

Copies of Heather’s book will be on sale for signing with the author.

There is no charge but space is limited
