Katharine T. Jacobs Reception

"Playthings" is a vibrant display of the artist's journey of recovering from illness and hurt. From being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, to a divorce that led to seeing her stepdaughter less frequently, to the passing of her father, this exhibit is her narrative of healing.

 

From Katharine...

 

"The doll has historically been used as a method to comfort, heal and bring joy. When my stepdaughter was young, she loved mermaids, but there were very few mermaid dolls in stores. I created them for her..."

Years later, life as I knew it dissolved. My father passed away, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, my marriage ended, and I was a new single mother to my daughter.... I made art to heal as I learned how to live with my disability.

I returned to the doll.... I use humor and oddity to touch on these human experiences in hopes that the viewer can have a similar weight lifted via their connection to a doll."

You can view the show at our tasting room and art gallery. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST HERE >>>

Our Roots Run Deep.

Bearing the legacy of four generations of Yorba citrus growers in Southern California, the Kraemer Family found a new home in the Sierra Foothills - on a beautiful, secluded ranch in Amador County. Our vineyard on Shake Ridge Ranch is the culmination of experience, thoughtful design and hard work.

Yorba
Farm

Our highly acclaimed viticulturist, Ann Kraemer, ensures the grapes are tended with constant attention, yet minimal and judicious intervention. 

 

The vines are given limited inputs, but are not asked to carry more crop than they can handle, encouraging strong, healthy plants, that produce wines of the highest quality.

In addition Yorba Wines, Shake Ridge Ranch supplies more than 30 winemakers grapes for their premium wines.

"Few vineyards, and probably none as young, account for as many wines on the wine list of Napa Valley’s acclaimed restaurant the French Laundry — 11."

Mike Dunne, San Francisco Chronicle
