Vintner Office On Track With Vineyards

Oh, so many fun puns in that header...IF you know that the new NVV office is flanked by railroad tracks on one side and vineyards on the others. It is also a nod to the fact that our construction schedule is roughly mirroring the annual winegrape timeline: ground broke on restoration of the old Jackse Winery in March, before vine bloom, and is on schedule to complete by end of the year, relatively soon after most of this year's grape crop will have finished their tenure in fermentation tanks and moved to oak aging barrels.

Below, NVV Board of Directors tour the work in progress. Pictured left to right are: Rick Jones, Jones Family Vineyards; Paula Kornell, Oakville Ranch Vineyards; Kathleen Heitz Myers, Heitz Wine Cellars; Pat Stotesbery, Ladera Vineyards; Rachel Wyckoff, Auction Community Board Member; Ray Chadwick, Duckhorn Wine Company; Linda Reiff, Napa Valley Vintners; Bruce Cakebread, Cakebread Cellars.
