So... If we are going to do a shout out to canine friends of Cartograph, I feel in the interest of equal time we should note that we have catnip in the front planter for any of you who might want to bring a little treat home for your feline friend.

Look at that, I got spotlighted by my high school, how fun! And even more fun that we released the 2013 Choate Vineyard Pinot noir this past September. - Serena

Choate Rosemary Hall Alumni Association
Serena Lourie ’91 developed an appreciation for wine during her childhood in Pentrez, France, when family meals often involved a special bottle from her grandfather’s basement. Fast forward to adulthood… while living in California, she began to explore the state’s wine regions. After many tastings and classes, she headed to the groundbreaking urban winery, Crushpad. Her avocation quickly turned into a vocation, and in 2009 she and partner, Alan Baker, decided to open Cartograph Wines in Healdsburg, California. Today Serena manages the daily operations, and you can often find her in the Cartograph tasting room in downtown Healdsburg.

It was a cold, dark, rainy night and we had a wonderful fire going so we dipped into the library to taste the 2009 Perli Vineyard Pinot Noir.‪ #‎happiness‬ - Serena

Oranges from the Cartograph garden are still just a tad too tart. By January they should be delicious! - Serena
