The Agenda: Trinchero Napa Valley, Erica Tanov Wallpaper, and the American Craft CouncilAuthor:Lindsey Shook
With a history dating back nearly 70 years, the Trinchero family is deeply rooted in Napa Valley’s winemaking tradition. But its winery and tasting room were due for an update. The grand reopening, which took place just last month, marks the final phase of a multiyear modernization process. The new 5,000 square-foot building designed by BAR Architects is modeled as farmhouse chic with bold interiors by local designer Erin Martin. An open floor plan, soaring 22-foot-high ceilings, and decorative steel trusses serve as a backdrop to Martin’s rich decor of tufted leather and brass furnishings—all of which pay tribute to the family’s Italian and New York roots.
When: Tasting room open daily, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Where: 3070 St. Helena Hwy., St. Helena
Start rummaging through the attic for grandmother’s treasures. The hit PBS show touches down in the desert next weekend and will appraise up to two items for each participant.

But, if you miss it in person, you can always catch the Emmy Award-nominated show on the tube every Monday night.
When: Sat. 8/6
Where: Palm Springs Convention Center, 277 N. Avenida Caballeros, Palm Springs
Gorgeous hand silk-screen-printed wallpaper is the latest foray into home accessories by Berkeley lifestyle designer Erica Tanov. After 25 years of working with textiles, it was only natural for Tanov to explore this next step in her signature line. Drawing on natural inspirations, the two initial prints, fern and tendril, were inspired by the late morning shadows that hit the designer’s garden patio. Mixing color, texture, and pattern, the rich palette of chocolate, charcoal, and metallics lends an organic, understated elegance to any room.
When: Launched online July 2016
Where: Erica Tanov Berkeley, 1827 Fourth St., Berkeley; Erica Tanov Larkspur, 2415 Larkspur Landing Circle, Larkspur; online at shop.ericatanov.com
