The panel will feature subjects from Prince’s new book, Rock and Vine: Next Generation Changemakers in America’s Wine Country. The book reveals the lives and innovations of these new industry leaders. The panel discussions will showcase the insights and experiences of these trailblazers whose goals are to continue the legacy of Napa Valley and Sonoma wine regions.
