Danine has been working in the wine industry for 12 years, but has lived in Napa for 37 years. She has thoroughly enjoyed living in Napa, and watching this industry and culture grow through the years.  It’s hard for her to imagine a more beautiful and peaceful place to live. Danine’s favorite things to do are painting, eating great food while sipping wine, and gardening, so she probably lives in the right place.
