SOCIAL EVENT: Wine Lecture | Palos Verdes 45 | 4:00 - 5:00pm
Join Vintner and Sommelier Ryan Evans as he details the unique family histories that built the Napa Valley into one of the most prestigious wine regions in the world. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about the wines, and the families behind them, that are featured in the wine pull and the wine and food pairing by attending his 30-minute presentation.

Napa Valley has a rich viticultural history that dates back to the mid-1800’s. Many of us have heard about the world-class wines, expensive price tags and glamorous events that are associated with Napa’s name. However, the rich familial histories of the vineyards and wineries are what made Napa Valley what it is today. Come learn about the multi-generational, boutique family wineries that have been honing their craft for decades and experience the foundation of which one the world’s most famous wine regions rests upon. A separate registration for the wine tasting is required, however, everyone is welcome to attend the lecture.
