The Culinary Institute of America announced its 2011 Vintners Hall of Fame and the inductees will be Ravenswood founder Joel Peterson; UC Davis Professor of Enology, Emeritus Vernon Singleton; and Bob Trinchero, owner of Sutter Home Winery and Trinchero Napa Valley. Chalone Vineyards winemaker Richard Graff and August Sebastiani, the founder of the eponymous Sonoma winery, they will all be inducted as Pioneers.

“The Vintners Hall of Fame is a place to recognize the hard work of the men and women who have made the California wine industry the success it is today,” says Dr. Tim Ryan, president of the CIA. “The inductees have each made a significant contribution in their own way, and the world of wine is grateful for their efforts.”
