Wine and Words

WINE AND WORDS: WINE TASTING AND A CONVERSATION WITH PETER MONDAVI, JR. ON THE IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON THE WINE INDUSTRY WITH WINE COUNTRY MYSTERY NOVELIST ELLEN CROSBY

First, a wine tasting: Peter Mondavi, Jr. will walk online attendees through two of his Charles Krug favorites, the 2020 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc and the 2017 Family Reserve Generations Blend. Next, Ellen Crosby, author of 14 books including THE FRENCH PARADOX (#11 in the Virginia wine country mystery series) and former freelance journalist with The Washington Post, will be in conversation with Peter to talk about the impact of climate change on the future of wine-making and grape growing in the US and internationally. You won’t want to miss this fascinating, candid, and eye-opening discussion—bring your questions for Peter and Ellen.

Ellen Crosby’s wine country mysteries are set in Virginia’s beautiful horse and hunt country and always feature history and mystery. Virginia, which has more than 300 wineries and a history of trying to grow grapes and produce wine since 1609, is the 5th largest wine-producing state in the US.

This is sure to be a great event!
