Artist - Jim Freed
March 12-May 13, 2014
Reception- March 16, 2014
We're excited to welcome a new artist to our space March 12-May 13,
with an artist reception on March 16 from 1-3pm. Jim Freed is a Bay
Area artist who teaches at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Jim says, "I'm interested in how people interact with the landscape
through the built environment. My work tends to show landscapes with
evidence of human interaction, buildings, boats, vehicles, and the
like, but not so much the people themselves. The amazing way that
light plays on the form of structures has always fascinated me. I
like how our structures change over time, how they weather, and how
buildings are affected by their environment. They are metaphors for
human life." You can check out Jim's work at www.jimfreed.com.

Seminar with Dan
April 26, 2014
Our wine education series continues in 2014, kicking off with a brand
new seminar with Dan. For this class, Dan will be focusing on our
individual lots of pinot noir and chardonnay, and the different barrels
and coopers he chooses for them. Each of our single-vineyard wines
has a signature barrel that Dan feels brings out the distinctive quality
in that wine. You'll taste for yourself what a Seguin Moreau barrel
brings to some of our pinots, and why we love Taransaud for our Rued
Chardonnay. A private reception with appetizers follows the seminar.
Very limited seating for this seminar, so reserve your space early.
Tickets are $45 each for wine club members, $55 each for non-members.
