Changing Napa: Lindsay Hoopes
Lindsay Hoopes went from working with Kamala Harris on tough cases to taking over her father's Napa Valley winery, which is a job twist she never saw coming. As the CEO at Hoopes Vineyard, she's navigated challenges as complex as those she encountered as a lawyer back in San Francisco. When the 2017 fires blanketed the grapes with smoke, Hoopes had to choose whether to compost the year's crop or find a way to save it. Her move to salvage the vintage with a Napa-appellation Brandy (coined Napagnac) put a spotlight on the future of Napa Valley as the wine industry contends with climate-change related issues among others. Listen in for more on Lindsay's fascinating career and her stewardship of one of Napa's top family-owned wineries.
