Join us on Monday, May 15 for a lively American History (After Hours) that will explore the wine and stories from five acclaimed Latino winemakers from California:
• Gustavo Wine
• Ceja Vineyards
• Mi Sueño Winery
• Maldonado Vineyards
• Robledo Family Winery
The history of viticulture and winemaking in California cannot be told without recognizing the significant contributions of Mexican and Mexican American families who have been planting, nurturing, and harvesting California’s wine grapes for generations. The Sonoma, Napa, and Lake County districts now bear multiple Latino winemaking estates, many run by second-, third-, and fourth-generation families. Each winery joining us for the evening has made a significant contribution to the legacy of American winemaking, while still honoring the rich and complex culture and cuisine of Mexico.
The evening will start with a panel discussion featuring members of these family-owned wineries and open to an interactive reception with tastings from each wineries, delicious appetizers, objects out of storage, and the chance to speak with winemakers, experts, and historians.
Tickets include food and drink. This is a 21+ event. Buy tickets here.
