Premiere Napa Valley Special: The Road to Individualism: Napa Valley’s 20-Year Style Diversity Revolution with Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW
Over the last fifty years, Napa Valley has unquestionably been on a quality-bound trajectory. Into the 1990s and early 2000s, the region proved its ability to produce world-class wines of the highest quality consistently. Since then, the new, greater goal has been the expression of individual identities—wines that deliver an authentic sense of place, time, and people without sacrificing quality. Factor in the challenges of drought, wildfires, and heat spikes, and the result has been a period of unprecedented creativity and innovation. Today, Napa Valley delivers an extensive range of high-quality styles for such a compact area. This session will look at how winemakers across the region have used innovation to achieve signature expressions and maintain quality while riding the waves of climate change.
