With Suzanne Groth and Winemaker Emeritus Michael Weis

Groth’s new intimate, educational series Oakville Summer School takes you behind the scenes, in the cellar and among the vines. Each unforgettable session — limited to just 30 participants — promises expert insights, hands-on experiences and extraordinary wine. In “Sipping & Storytelling: The History of Oakville,” you’ll taste the history of Oakville — and Groth — while hearing insider stories of how this former steam train stop became one of the world’s top regions for Cabernet Sauvignon. Learn how the Groth family’s faith in their land, relationships with neighbors and hard work made their dream of making fine wine here a reality. This session is led by Suzanne Groth, who grew up in Napa Valley and is now Groth’s second-generation President & CEO, and Michael Weis, who retired from Groth as Winemaker Emeritus in 2020 after a distinguished 26-year career with the winery. His impressive background also includes work at Robert Mondavi Winery and Vichon. 

Your ticket includes:

  • Admission for one participant
  • Expert insights from Suzanne Groth & Winemaker Emeritus Michael Weis
  • Flight of library wines
  • Commemorative Oakville Summer School T-shirt
