Bob Haas - 80th Birthday Accolades

It was gratifying to me to see a handful of articles on my dad's career, timed to coincide with his 80th birthday.  I wrote a few weeks back about my dad's amazing career, so I won't repeat myself, but I encourage you to read Jon Bonne's thoughtful, thorough feature from the San Francisco Chronicle as well as Janis Switzer's very nice article in the San Luis Obispo Tribune.

We are also looking forward to a piece in the May issue of Wines & Vines, written by Laurie Daniel.

Out at the vineyard, we had a really nice celebration of his life in wine, with friends and family assembling from all over the country and all over the world.  A few photos from the event are below.
