“Combining oral history with scholarly analysis this, the first documentary about the history of Italians in California, explores the multiracial nature of California and the Italians’ place in that racial landscape.” Dr. Paola Sensi-Isolani, Anthropologist, St. Mary’s College

Finding the Mother Lode documents the experience of Italian immigrants in California, which was markedly different from that of their compatriots elsewhere in the United States. Through stories set in seven Italian communities throughout California, this film examines how economic and social mobility became possible for many Italians in the Golden State. It is also a look at how immigrant identity is maintained and transformed as immigrants become assimilated into mainstream America. These immigrants found their ‘mother lode’ in farming, fishing, commerce and winemaking. To learn more about the film and film makers, visit their website www.findingthemotherlode.com. A few notable area winegrowers were interviewed in the film, including Jeff Collins (Cellar #8 at Asti Winery), Jim Pedroncelli (Pedroncelli Winery) and Peter & Ed Seghesio (Seghesio Winery). A wine reception will also be held featuring wines from these wineries during the chat.

Healdsburg SHEDThe Wine Library Associates of Sonoma County will hold its annual meeting this year on November 1, 2013 at Healdsburg SHED. This year’s meeting will feature a presentation and discussion by writer, editor, lecturer, and food and restaurant consultant Clark Wolf, accompanied by delightful food from SHED and an exciting selection of California wines.

The discussion will focus on the state of the culinary universe in Sonoma County and beyond—a retrospective on the changing landscape of food and wine, the onset of culinary tourism, and what it means for the county in the coming years. In what direction are we headed, and what is most important as we forge the future of farming, wine, food and dining in Northern California and beyond?

Community meeting space at SHED

The food and drink universe in Sonoma County has profoundly changed over the last twenty years; any observer of the rise of wine and food tourism will see that—but understanding how we got here and where we’re headed is a more provoking question. We are excited to share this evening with Mr. Wolf and have a productive and engaging discussion about our delicious and sustainable future.
