The success of this event enables the Foundation to execute on its mission to cultivate and invest in the wine and food community through education, appreciation and enjoyment.

Featured Winemaker

Hugh Davies, Schramsberg Vineyards

One might say that Hugh Davies was born with a wineglass in his hand, and that wouldn’t be too far from the truth. Hugh was born in 1965, the same year that his parents, Jack and Jamie Davies, purchased the abandoned Schramsberg Estate in Calistoga. Hugh grew up among the vines, caves, tanks and barrels that make Schramsberg Vineyards what it is today: the premier producer of American sparkling wines.
