Oakville Summer School: History of Oakville 8/12/23

Sipping & Storytelling: The History of Oakville

Saturday, August 12 | 10:30 a.m. to Noon

With Dennis Groth, Suzanne Groth and Winemaker Emeritus Michael Weis

Taste the history of Oakville — and Groth — while hearing insider stories of how this former steam train stop became one of the world’s top regions for Cabernet Sauvignon. Learn how the Groth family’s faith in their land, relationships with neighbors and hard work made their dream of making fine wine here a reality as you sip a flight wines including special selections from the Groth vault.

This session is led by Groth Vineyards & Winery founder Dennis Groth; his daughter, Suzanne Groth, who grew up in Napa Valley and is now Groth’s second-generation President & CEO; and Michael Weis, who retired from Groth as Winemaker Emeritus in 2020 after a distinguished 26-year career with the winery. His impressive background also includes work at Robert Mondavi Winery and Vichon.
