Jan. 17: ‘Thinking Outside the Bottle’ at the Napa Valley Museum


Winery owners come from all areas of the world—both geographically and anthropologically. We’ve got retired dentists, Wall Street bankers, practicing lawyers, Oscar-winning filmmakers and at least 10 artists. At least that’s what the Napa Valley Museum is telling us with its new exhibit, ‘Thinking Outside the Bottle.’ Shining a light on winemakers, viticulturalists and winery owners who refuse to relegate themselves to one art form, the show includes painters, ceramicists and sculptors from Charter Oak, Mendelson, Zacherle and others. Both Margrit Mondavi and Eleanor Coppola are included in the show, too, which opens with a reception on Friday, Jan. 17, at the Napa Valley Museum. 55 Presidents Circle, Yountville. 5:30—7pm. $5. 707.944.0500.
