Sunday, September 18 – Celebrating Women Entrepreneurs
Location: 101 S. Coombs Street, Suite H, Napa, CA 94559
Studio Hours: 10-5

Welcome to a sneak peak of the second day of Open Studios Napa Valley, which will be hosted at my art studio on  September 18, 2016.  Everyone who knows me knows I love entrepreneurship and I really love women entrepreneurs. So it seemed only fitting to celebrate creative women entrepreneurs during day two of Open Studios Napa Valley.

12 – 3:00 p.m. Henna Tattoos – We have a very special Henna artist – Asha Cooper – who will be sharing her artistic Henna talents (donations and tips are accepted to help support her college dreams!)

12 – 3:30 Chiara Adorno, Chef and founder of Tender Fork Market Artisan Breads

Chiara will be serving her artisan breads.  Chiara loves the craft and the magic of making breads, as they were made for many generations. “I love reviving the old traditions of bringing forth fantastic local foods, with great health benefits, great flavor, made through a slow, tried and true process, (definitely not the world of fast food or instant production) and doing things as they were done generations ago.” All her breads are made from scratch, in small batches, using the finest quality ingredients, local in California wherever possible, and offer all organic breads as well as the finest non-organic. The quality of our products is our focus, as well as the art and the craft of bread making.  For bread lovers and foodies, they offer the highest quality, taste and deliciousness in their fermented, naturally leavened artisan breads.

12 – 4:00 Paula Harrell, owner and founder of P Harell Wines

Paula will be pouring her signature wines. As owner and founder, Paula developed P. Harrell Wines from a pure and unadulterated love for wine. “Being one of the very few African American women wine owners in the industry, I truly appreciate how wine culture so seamlessly intertwines people from all walks of life and bonds them in laughter, joy, and openness, while dissolving all barriers to genuine connection and relationship.”

Paula’s zinfandel carries the label Three Fifteen. This wine is named after my childhood home, THREE FIFTEEN Santa Ana Avenue in San Francisco, California; a magical melting pot of family, friends, laughter and mutual support. While enjoying many visitors in my family home, I formed exceptional friendships & strengthened family bonds that continue to nourish me and fuel the pursuit of my passion, crafting beautiful wines.  This Zinfandel is a full bodied & fruit driven wine, supported by layers of vanilla, cinnamon, clove and a hint of white pepper.

Paula also pours her Haight Street Riesling. According to Paula, “My wines are an overall tribute to my family’s legacy, its dedication to community, friendship, cultural heritage & one another. I was born and raised in San Francisco where our family owned residential care home facilities for the elderly, several of which provided employment for some of my mother’s family who had emigrated from their home country of Panama. In paying homage I have named my first wines after locations that hold special meaning to our family’s life and business.

“Haight Street” refers to our property located at 940 Haight Street, San Francisco. My father and grandmother built this property from the ground up in 1969 and it was the cornerstone of their business. I named this dry Riesling in their honor, as it is as bold and driven in its complexity and flavor as they were in their business. Opening with a bouquet of peach blossom and passion fruit on the nose, the wine has a palate full of citrus fruit, minerality, lemon grass and honeydew. In my mind, a worthy tribute to their legacy. Enjoy”
