Napa Valley vintner Warren Winiarski spoke at a fundraising dinner celebrating the Smithsonian Institution’s opening of the first major exhibit on American food and wine, “Food: Transforming the American Table 1950-2000,” in Washington, D.C.

Winiarski told the audience that winemaking around the world should focus once again on balance and proportion. “Great wine requires an unwavering commitment to aesthetic proportion, and that is something I continue to stress today as consultant and mentor to the new generation of winemakers,” he said.

Winiarski is founder of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and winemaker of the cabernet sauvignon that bested France’s wines in the historic 1976 Judgment of Paris. A bottle of Winiarski’s 1973 SLV Cabernet Sauvignon is on display at the museum.
