Winter 2013 REPORT - Our 50th Anniversary Weekend Remembered
The Winter 2013 REPORT reviews two stellar occasions. The first is our 22nd Winemakers Seminar, “A Toast to the Future: the Next Generations,” which the winemakers said they really enjoyed because it gave them a chance to meet and talk with one another as well as our members and guests.The second is the 50th Annual Tasting, “A Toast to History: Vintner’s Choice” at which 99 Napa Valley wineries poured at least two wines, old and new, rare and newly released. Nearly half of those doing the pouring were winery principals. Their generous participation helped make this landmark tasting especially celebratory.
Founded in 1963, the Napa Valley Wine Library Association dedicates their efforts to the acquisition, preservation and sharing of information about wine and its history in the Napa Valley and around the world. In 1966, the Association offered the first wine appreciation classes in the Napa Valley and today continues to host seminars and other educational events, as well as maintain a collection of new and rare books, images, oral histories, and scholarly and popular journals related to every facet of wine. The collection offers incomparable resources for wine enthusiasts and professionals alike, and is available at the St. Helena Public Library (hot link as previously) in St. Helena, California.
Membership supports the mission to collect and preserve a diversity of wine-related materials and maintain access to these treasures for generations to come.
