Napa Valley Vintners Celebrates 75 Years by Remembering its Beginnings

“The Napa Valley to other industries had an unusual reputation of collaborating, and we took pride in that. When we went to tastings, we would pour each other’s wines … it was not dog eat dog.” That was Napa in the early 1980s, according to John Shafer, the founder of Shafer Vineyards. Shafer passed away in March, but his story and world view lives on through the Napa Valley Vintners Oral History Project. Shafer is one of 12 individuals, including Robin Daniel Lail and Michael Mondavi, interviewed by the Oral History Center at the University of California Berkeley’s Bancroft Library. Done in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Vintners, the project documents the history of Napa Valley and the Vintners’ role in the creation and establishment of the region as it’s known today.
