Quady North Dinner 3/15/18

Join us on Sunday, March 15th for an Evening with Quady North

 

Winemaker
Herb grew up on his family’s winery west of Madera. He attended UC
Santa Cruz, surfing, playing rugby, and occasionally studying Marxist theory
concerning the comparative politics of supernational institutions. Although a trip
to law school had originally been Herb’s goal, eventually, he grew a conscience,
and decided to explore the more honest world of winemaking. He landed a
position in the very hectic cellar of Bonny Doon Winery and after a two year tour
of duty, enrolled in the hallowed halls of the Viticulture and Enology department
at Fresno State and began working at the family winery in Madera, that his parents founded in 1975.
