Russian River Valley Winegrowers Hosts third annual Paulée Dinner
The Russian River Valley Winegrowers will host the third annual Paulée Dinner on the evening of May 2. This year’s celebration is designed to coincide with the Sonoma County Barrel Auction, which welcomes the trade wine collectors to experience the best never before, never seen again wine lots from Sonoma’s most prolific AVAs, including the Russian River Valley. As the tradition of Paulée, which originated in Burgundy, gathers winemakers and collectors together in celebration of a bountiful harvest, so, too, the Russian River Valley brings together some of the most esteemed winegrowers and winemakers to gather with guests to share special wines from their personal cellars.
Presidio Trust to Unveil "Operation Babylift"
Operation Babylift: Perspectives and Legacies, which explores the diverse experiences and lasting impacts of a dramatic airlift that removed more than 2,000 Vietnamese children from their war-torn country to be adopted by American families as Saigon fell in April 1975. The extraordinary story continued at the Presidio, where more than 1,500 of these children were transferred before being placed with families. As 5,400 volunteers in the San Francisco Bay Area cared for the children, Operation Babylift itself was being debated across the country.
