What does it take to go from being a farmworker to a winegrower? A group of members of the Mexican American Vintners Association, descendants from Braceros who came to the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, will discuss the progression of their families and their contributions to the wine industry. In a global corporate market, small family run wineries keep transforming the history of the wine in America. There will be wine tasted during the seminar from different areas of Napa Valley.
