Bibiana González Rave Winemaker Dinner
Thursday, December 15th Event Starts at 5:30pm

Our final wine event of 2022 will feature one of California’s top tier winemakers – Bibiana González Rave!

At 14 years old, Bibiana decided to become a winemaker. This was a somewhat random career goal for a teenager born and raised in Medellín, Colombia, where the drinks of choice were beer, aguardiente, and rum. But she stuck with the idea, studying chemical engineering in college before moving to France in search of a more specific enological education.

Bibiana’s ensuing six years in France included training in Cognac, a bachelor’s degree at the University of Bordeaux, and stints at illustrious French wineries. The experience inspired an obsession with quality, which she brought with her to leadership roles at distinctly Californian operations like Lynmar Estate and Pahlmeyer. All of these influences can be seen in her flagship label Cattleya Wines, founded in 2012.

We hope that you can join us for a wonderful evening of fine wines, great food, and countless stories from Bibiana!
