CHINESE IN NAPA VALLEY Wine Tasting Soiree

April 22 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join CHSA for a spirited evening pairing some of the finest wineries from Napa Valley with Chinese American history and art.

This fundraising program will include local wine and refreshments reflecting the magnificent bounty of the Sonoma and Napa Valley region, auction items, and a Q&A session and discussion with Napa native and author John McCormick. He, along with contributor Connie Young Yu, will be discussing his book “Chinese in Napa Valley: The Forgotten Community that Built Wine Country,” which makes notable mention of Buena Vista’s remarkable history of employing Chinese immigrants, far from being the accepted practice during the time, in the construction of cellars as well as the production of its wines.

Also on display will be original Jake Lee artwork depicting the early influence of Chinese American laborers in the creation of the internationally famous Napa Valley wine region.

Ticket price includes this event plus viewing of the Bruce Lee Exhibit inside CHSA

Ticket pricing is $150 per a person but in the Spirit of inclusion we have sliding scale. Recommended price is $150 or give what you can, no one turned away for lack of funds
