After working together for over 10 years at two other wineries, veteran winemaker Elaine St. Clair and winery executive Laina Brown decided to join forces to create St. Clair Brown. They will offer a 20% discount on wines at the event.
Elaine St. Clair has been making wine for 30 years. She was born in Cambridge, England. Her family moved to Houston, Texas, when Elaine was 12 years old. Elaine moved to California to attend college and in 1986 graduated from the University of California, Davis with a Fermentation Science degree in both winemaking and brewing.
Laina Brown opened Black Stallion winery in 2007. Shortly after, she asked Elaine St. Clair to join her as Head Winemaker. When the winery was sold in 2010, Elaine and Laina decided to continue working together and to create a company that reflected their passions.
