Monthly Wine Tastings - recently Truchard and Canard of Napa Valley

Recent Wine events in February and March featured small Family Owned Vineyards from Napa Valley.   On February 21 we were visited by Anthony Truchard of Truchard Vineyards in Carneros-Napa..  Anthony engaged our sold out tasting with stories of growing up on the farm and vineyard property.  With a history of over 50 years in Carneros, they began producing their own estate grown wines in 1989.
