Heather Sandy Hebert, author of
The New Architecture of Wine: 25 Spectacular California Wineries
with Bob Torres, Principal & Vice Chairman, Trinchero Napa Valley and Erin Martin of Erin Martin Design.
Twelve of the 25 wineries in Heather’s new book are in Napa Valley, including Trinchero Napa Valley. 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 Trinchero Napa Valley 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 Trinchero Napa Valley 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.
Warren Winiarski Wine Writer Collection Fellow,
UC Davis Library
Jullianne is here to discuss year one of her inaugural two-year Wine Writer Fellowship at UC Davis Library where she is engaged in active research to document the influence of wine writers on the kinds, styles and qualities of wine in the United States since Prohibition and to develop and provide content and access for the materials at UC Davis Library. Our Napa Valley Wine Library Collection has played a prominent role in her research. Selections from its archives will also be on exhibit
Alexandria Brown and her just published
Hidden History of Napa Valley
"Napa Valley is known for its wine and winemakers, but just beneath the fertile soil lies another, more complex version of its history. Uncover the story of Napa’s first Chinatown—once home to nearly five hundred immigrants—that dwindled to fewer than seventeen residents before the last buildings were razed in the early twentieth century. Meet the small but determined group of African American farmers and barbers who called Napa home and the indomitable May Howard, a successful businesswoman and brothel owner. Learn about the Bracero Program that kept many of Napa’s wineries, including Krug, Beaulieu and Stag’s Leap, thriving during World War II. Join author Alexandria Brown as she explores these lesser-known stories of the ordinary people who helped shape modern-day wine country.”
