Wine: Our Story

Wine: Our Story at the Goodman Library

October 8, 2021 - March 26, 2022

Featuring 53 wineries that are making history today!  

Winemaking is an economic juggernaut of the Napa Valley. Thanks to the climate, soil, and winemaker expertise, the Valley produces world-renowned wines. We do not know if the Valley’s first people cultivated grapes, but we know that one of the first crops George Yount planted in 1836 was a personal vineyard. Today’s 500 plus Napa labels, sixteen viticultural designations, and award-winning wines, played an important role in Napa County. Millions of visitors travel every year to taste our wines. Even Prohibition did not snuff out the wine industry in the Napa Valley. Wine: Our Story explores the winemakers making history today, the development of the industry since 1836, and the iconic accouterments associated with wine.

Free and open to the public five days a week in the Exhibit Hall at the Goodman Library.
