The more I think about it, the more I believe that wine, the ultimate social lubricant, can change the world. I believe it so much I created Humanitas Winery for that very purpose. What I mean by this is that the power of wine brings people together in such a positive way that it can galvanize & unify people to make a difference…just because they can.
I don’t know of anything else with quite this power.
It has been more than 30 years since we first visited Napa Valley together, and it’s sometimes hard to believe how much it has changed since then. The quiet towns of yesteryear now thrive, packed with restaurants and wine-lovers; and the once-sparse landscape has given way to endless rows of vines and wineries. Tasting rooms didn’t exist during our early years of visiting, so wine producers would invite you to sit in their kitchen, on their porch, or in their farm offices while drinking their wine with them.
