This event focuses on words as artistic medium, plus after-hours wine tasting in a funky, inspiring space. The Storytelling Speakeasy seeks to introduce the audience to the presence of the written word in the Napa Valley in a relaxed and relatable way. We wanted to capture the bohemian atmosphere of Calistoga, which fosters creativity and adventurous spirit, much as the original speakeasies of the 1920s were havens for society’s outliers, misfits and artists.
