In 2003, Robin Cooper, a native New Yorker and successful Executive Recruiter in the world of Wall Street, came to the Napa Valley to work harvest for Behrens Family Winery as an intern and to have a “life experience”. She has remained ever since. In 2006, the owners of the same winery decided it was time to start letting people come to visit and tapped Robin to create a hospitality function for them. Since then, Robin has been the Director of Hospitality and Customer Relations for Behrens Family Winery, representing the award-winning wines of Les Behrens and Lisa Drinkward.

These tiny production red wines produced on Spring Mountain in Napa are sourced from special low yielding vineyard sites from some of the best growers throughout the Napa Valley as well as Sonoma County, which result in a partnership of vineyards obsessed with producing extremely high-quality fruit.

Join Robin on a voyage of discovery down the beautiful Seine River as she compares her own Napa Valley wines versus those of France. This voyage is of special appeal to lovers of art, history and the fantastic Norman cuisine that so inspired Julia Child.
