In addition to hearing their personal L.A. stories, the event also includes 100-plus new line introductions, open houses, and showroom programs highlighting California craftsmanship, color forecasting, and design-technology integration.

Barchessa at Piazza del Dotto 

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



“Daring Women: Modernists in Architecture” 

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

When: 6 – 8 p.m., Tues. 9/26 

Where: Flexform, 145 Rhode Island St., San Francisco



Werk It 

In keeping with the all-ladies theme is the third annual Werk It women’s podcast festival that’s being held for the first time in L.A. at the Ace Hotel. The weekend intensive is a podcast bootcamp hosted by WNYC, the producers of such heavy hitters as “Radiolab” and “Freakonomics” and is meant to bring women’s voices to the front of the traditionally male-dominated industry. Look out for presenters Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson of “2 Dope Queens” and Anna Sale of “Death, Sex, and Money,” as well as the NPR Code Switch team. 

When: Tues., 10/3–Thurs., 10/5 

Where: The Theater at Ace Hotel, 929 S. Broadway, Downtown Los Angeles
