Harvard Alumni in Wine and Food (http://hawfbayarea.posterous.com/) presents an afternoon at Meteor Vineyard with host Barry Schuler: Internet pioneer, serial entrepreneur, education activist, film producer, Napa Valley vintner and foodie. Schuler's career spans breakthroughs in early video games, computer graphics, interactive media, entertainment and e-commerce. As former CEO of America Online he played a pivotal role in the consumerization of the Internet and, more recently, his projects include the development of the first desktop Ultra-short Pulse Lasers and creation of the breakthrough motion picture and subsequent Showtime series LOOK. His winery, Meteor Vineyard, is located in the Coombsville region of Napa Valley. Once passed over by wine lovers traveling north on Highway 29, Coombsville is becoming increasingly known for its ability to produce some of the world's most intriguing wines.
At this exclusive event, Schuler will draw on his extensive technology experience to discuss what role technology will play in the future wine industry. The afternoon will include a tour of Meteor Vineyard (http://meteorvineyard.com) and a tasting of several vintages of Meteor's Perseid Cabernet. A local chef will prepare wood fired artisan pizza and seasonal salads from the Meteor Vineyard garden, which will be served on the property amidst the backdrop of rolling vineyards and the picturesque Mt. George. Following lunch, we'll meet at nearby renowned Oxbow Public Market, home to the area's best artisanal and local foods and wines. Founder Steve Carlin will lead us on a tour and discuss how this local market is helping to lead Napa Valley's recent renaissance. Join us for what is sure to be an unforgettable wine country afternoon.
