Where: 8687 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood
After five years in the making, Del Dotto opened the doors to its latest winery earlier this month. The Venetian-inspired Piazza del Dotto and Barchessa (which translates to Italian barn) is by no means the humble space it implies. The palatial hospitality center, designed by local vintner Claudia Fleury, is decked out in authentic Italian furnishings, marble, paintings, statues, and a grand chandelier made in Florence. Two floors of tasting areas, plus a stunning outdoor terrace, provide plenty of opportunity to enjoy the grounds and feel like royalty for an afternoon.
When: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., daily
Where: 7466 St. Helena Hwy., Napa
Flexform San Francisco—for an event debuting its ADDA sofa and armchair collection—hosts a timely discussion about women and architecture. California Home + Design editor Mary Jo Bowling will guide a conversation with leading San Francisco architects Irit Axelrod, Anne Fougeron, Cary Bernstein, and Vivian Lee about people’s perceptions of women in the industry and whether the public makes assumptions about the type of work women contribute to the field. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When: 6 – 8 p.m., Tues. 9/26
Where: Flexform, 145 Rhode Island St., San Francisco

When: Tues., 10/3–Thurs., 10/5
