As many of you know, my dad and Shafer Vineyards founder, John Shafer, passed away in March 2 at the age of 94. He loved people, loved his work, and lived an incredible life. Everyone at Shafer, and in our family, has felt unbelievably supported and buoyed by the hundreds of emails, letters, and social media posts that many of you have written about what he meant to you. We wanted to share some video and stills from my dad's life that will give you a quick glimpse at his very rich life and how grateful he was for every day of it. Here at Shafer we are fortunate to live and work in a culture he helped create - one that values friendship, support, generosity, and integrity. We hope every experience you have with our winery reflects those values. Sincerely, Doug Shafer
