Hook & Ladder Wine Dinner
Tuesday, April 19th
Featuring special guest speaker, Michael De Loach, Hook and Ladder President
In 1970, San Francisco firefighter Cecil De Loach and his wife, Christine, staked their claim in the wine grape business by purchasing 24 acres of old-vine Zinfandel in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Over three decades later, the family sold the label and have continued their winemaking skills at the helm of a small family winery that employs the same philosophy – crafting exceptional wines, from the highest quality grapes, that people love to drink.
