— Our Vision
Building on the tremendous success of our inaugural event in 2017, the Sausalito Wine Experience is thrilled to have Napa Valley giant Andy Beckstoffer as our Honorary Chair for 2018. In June of 2017 Wine Spectator featured Andy as their cover story. Highlighting his tremendous success, they reported:
An eye-opening number of Napa Valley's highest-rated Cabernet Sauvignons have one thing in common—and it's not the winemaker or winery behind them. They all rely on grapes grown in vineyards owned by Andy Beckstoffer…the name Beckstoffer seems ubiquitous in Napa's top tier and is found on the labels of 37 different California wineries overall. Andy Beckstoffer is one of the early and most important leaders in the evolution of the Napa Valley to world-class grape growing region.
In 2000, Andy and Betty Beckstoffer were named St. Helena Citizens of the Year for their dedication and active participation in the community. And, in 2010, Andy was elected into the Culinary Institute of America’s Vintners Hall of Fame, the first grower to be honored with this prestigious wine industry award. We are excited to have Andy's son Tuck Beckstoffer pouring his critically acclaimed wines from Tuck Beckstoffer Wines at the Sausalito Wine Experience.
