A moderated Seminar and Tasting with Tegan Passalacqua (Winemaker for Turley Cellars and our Library Cuvée Petite Syrah from Barney’s Backyard)

Tegan guides us through the Italian heritage of vineyards and wines in Napa Valley from the 19th century to present day with the assistance of five panelists and a keynote speaker. From the earliest arrivals with their tradition of field blends, to the most innovative philosophies of winemaking today, we shall taste our way through the history of our local Italian wine community.

Confirmed panelists are Enrico Bertoz of Flora Springs and Arbe Garbe, Bob Biale of Robert Biale Vineyards, Dan Petroski of Larkmead Vineyards and Massican Winery, Glenn Salva of Antica Napa Valley, Vince Tofanelli of Tofanelli Family Vineyard, and Darrell Corti of Corti Brothers is again our keynote speaker.

A buffet lunch, with an Italian menu prepared by Executive Chef Todd Meyerhofer, follows the final Q&A’s of the seminar.
