Product details

Our 2nd Annual Meet the Winemaker Series returns! This year, we are privileged to host an inspiring range of our favorite California winemakers--many who have become symbolic of the modern wine scene, snagging big accolades and devoted followings, as well as many that we believe are the exciting, bright stars of the next generation. 

In these interactive, winemaker-led classes, we'll ask each host to speak to the unique challenges and opportunities of making wine in California today. In particular, this series will explore themes related to the drought, wildfires and flooding in California wine country as well as what the future may hold for both well established and up-and-coming producers: What are their hopes, aspirations and even fears are about growing their label in the coming years? We hope to open up an honest, encouraging and vulnerable conversation between winemaker and consumer--between these one- or two-man-or-woman shows and YOU, our guests, who literally help put food on their tables by buying their wines.

This Full Series Class Pack guarantees you a seat at the communal table for all eight classes (every Sunday at 3:00pm March 11-April 29) and reduces the per-class price from $30 to $25.

Can't commit to the full pack? Individual seats followed by standing room tickets will still be sold for each class ($30); registration opens every Sunday at 1pm for class at 3pm, and you can purchase your ticket by calling 510-686-3615 or coming into the shop.
