Napa Valley Rocks!

The Napa Valley Vintners is our local trade organization and if you aren’t aware of the educational riches there, you should check it out!

The most recent addition to their library is a video series called “Napa Valley Rocks.” It consists of several short, but very informative, videos that cover everything from the history of Napa Valley to how the vines are pruned.

When it came to the piece on viticulture, I was honored to be asked to provide quite a bit of the content! This video covers the amazing diversity of Napa Valley and you’ll see me talking, mainly, about terroir-driven and single vineyard wines – wines from the hundreds of small producers in the valley like Dyer – and how the sites and practices set one apart from the other. It’s well worth watching, if I do say so myself!

The video series had its world premier at our local Cameo Theater on February 20th, so we had our glitzy, red-carpet night in advance of the Oscars! It was quite an event and helped kick off an annual charity auction called Premiere Napa Valley. This year the auction raised over three million dollars for local charities!

So – happy viewing! Since we’re into March, now, we’re very much looking forward to bud break. Not that we want it to be early – better a bit late than early to avoid frost damage -  but it’s always so exciting to see the first tender green growth emerge from those gnarled, woody vines. Cheers!
