BottleRock 2016

Another perfect Napa Valley event. Well done, well organized and reflective of the best that Napa Valley has to offer.  

It’s a reminder, especially as we come up to elections, that the Valley is doing so well.  Tourism has never been stronger, the wine business never better, restaurants, hotels and hospitality never stronger. Our economy, our environmental practices and our generosity are unparalleled.  So how come we still have complainers?   Didn’t see any of them at BottleRock!!

A major presentation on the state of the Napa Wine Industry

mendelson1_print-282x176197c8bcteam-Craig-0.0.150

Richard Mendelson, Rob McMillan and Craig Underhill present to the Napa County Planning Commission on the state of wine distribution, sales trends, winery law and the economic factors impacting wine  sales, marketing and the economics of the Napa wine industry.

This Friday, Feb. 25, 2011 shows Jean-Charles Boisset, president of Boisset Family Estates, as he draws wine from a barrel-to-barrel dispenser at Raymond Vineyards in St. Helena, Calif.  Boisset Family Estates runs DeLoach Vineyards in the Russian River Valley region of Sonoma County, which has been selling what they call the barrel-to-barrel concept for more than a year, and recently launched the program at the company’s St. Helena-based Raymond Vineyards.

Jean Charles Boisset on the wine business, the Napa Valley and what wine is really about

As the debate continues as to what the Napa Valley should be and what the wine business is really about, it’s well worth listening to Jean Charles Boisset for whom the vineyards of Burgundy were his playground as kid and whose Boisset Family Estates is among the top 25 wine producers in the US.

Karin Argoud’s reports on Travis Rogers and the Napa High Choir Program

REPORTER’S NOTE:

Travis Rogers was the inspiration for this piece.  I was truly moved when I took my daughter through his class ( on a high school tour) and heard with my own ears the souls of the students through their voices, and saw with my own eyes- the desire and passion for singing that Travis Rogers taught these young students.
