2020 Honorary Wine Chairs

Mike Lamborn, Lamborn Family Vineyard

Winegrowing, romantic? No, it’s more like “down to earth.” Mike Lamborn leads this small, family-owned and operated vineyard in Napa Valley, California that produces wines made by Heidi Barrett.  Vineyard operations are key to each vintage; Mike spends hundreds of hours each year nurturing the vineyard and adjusting it to the conditions of each growing season.

Second (and Third!) Wine Chair

Our Virtual Event this year will have multiple winemakers!  We will be announcing soon our additional hosts for the evening.  Stay tuned!
