TD-9 is an adventurous red blend that celebrates a bold move. In 1973 John Shafer went from taking morning commuter trains in Chicago to teaching himself to drive an old TD-9 tractor in our Napa Valley vineyard. He’d never grown grapes or made wine in his life.

The Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard (also called the Parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard or the Parable of the Generous Employer) is a parable of Jesus which appears in the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament.

Vineyard in Napa DOUG SHAFER with Andy Demsky Foreword by Danny Meyer. will discuss the recently released book. A Vineyard in Napa, published by the. University of California Press. Father and son, John and Doug Shafer, PUBLIC.

At the age of 47, when he a successful publishing executive and living with his wife and four children in an affluent Chicago suburb, John Shafer made the surprise announcement that he had purchased a vineyard in the Napa Valley. In 1973, he moved his family to California and, with no knowledge of winemaking, began the journey that would lead him, thirty years later, to own and operate what distinguished wine critic Robert M. Parker, Jr. called “one of the world’s greatest wineries.” This book, narrated by Shafer’s son Doug, is a personal account of how his father turned his midlife dream into a remarkable success story.Set against the backdrop of Napa Valley’s transformation from a rural backwater in the 1970s through its emergence today as one of the top wine regions in the world, the book begins with the winery’s shaky start and takes the reader through the father and son’s ongoing battles against killer bugs, cellar disasters, local politics, changing consumer tastes, and the volatility of nature itself. Doug Shafer tells the story of his own education, as well as Shafer Vineyards’ innovative efforts to be environmentally sustainable, its role in spearheading the designation of a Stags Leap American Viticultural Area, and how the wine industry has changed in the contemporary era of custom-crushing and hobbyist winery investors.

Doug Shafer writes an interesting story of he and his father and their wine business. I have been a fan of Shafer Wineries for years and my one visit to their place in Napa sticks in my mind as I read this book. Modest to a fault, both father and son have done an amazing job to create a world class wine business out of a father's dream. Read it and learn a great deal about the pain and the pleasure of this special business. It is a very readable story that should appeal to wine lovers and those aspiring to be.

Napa valley wine history written by one of the people who lived (and still lives) it. Easy read, great name dropping through out the book. Very entertaining read, not overly scientific.
Picking up a bottle of 1.5 for tonight. :)

Great read about growing grapes and making wine. A fun gift to your friends who own wine. I paired it with a Shafer Merlot, one of their more affordable wines.
Vizuru
This entrepreneur have built an amazing winery that produces one of my favorite wines. If you haven't tried their "1.5" wine, you really should.
Castiel
Good read about The Shafer Vineyard Family. I actually learned a tremendous amount about The Napa region, and the wine making business. I would highly recommend reading if you are planning a trip out there.
Kanek
If you love wine and want to learn more about Napa Valley, buy this book. It is also an incredible success story about what father, son an Elias did to build one of the greatest wineries in the world. When I finished the book, I went to my cellar and opened a bottle of the One Point Five Stags Leap District Cabernet.
Qwert
This is a carefully written story of a winery which has great wines and has been a part of a fascinating time. A good beach book that leaves you wanting to know more about the area
Great combination of a history of Napa built around the history of Shafer Vineyards.
