About the event

ABOUT

"Our purpose is to make the discovery and appreciation of wine more joyful and modern in its approach. Having Kathy Lajvardi reveal and talk about each of her new paintings, then having Kristie Tacey pairs her wine with the characteristics of the art is another manifestation of our purpose."  - Naushad Huda

WINE + ART

The Concept

-Each original painting is revealed one at a time. 

-Artist speaks about the art. 

-Winemaker pairs a wine with characteristics of the art. 

-Musician plays music that pairs with both. 

KRISTIE TACEY, the Winemaker

Kristie Tacey, winemaker and founder of Tessier Winery, is a scientist turned winemaker. 

A former published research scientist who studied protein pathways, she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area from her native Michigan to pursue a career in biotechnology, which included working on the Human Genome Project. She uses minimal-interventionist winemaking techniques to showcase the unique characteristics of the grapes and the vineyards. For Kristie, sustainability is a priority — not only with the vineyards’ farming practices, but also by having long-term relationships with her growers and customers. These small production wines, an annual production of 1400 cases, get unparalleled attention.

She also loves music and has been pairing some of her favorite songs with each wine that she bottles.

Over the last two decades she has received more than 20 awards for design and art direction. Her work includes concert graphics for Madonna & Beyonce, commercial graphics for Lexus, Disney, Apple, and movie graphics for Iron Man and Transformers. She has Illustrated a series of wine books, designed the interior of homes, and curated in-person events.
