Dr. David Guggenheim returns to Muse Vineyards in Woodstock, Virginia (just 90 minutes from Washington, DC). You’ve seen him before for his photography exhibits, now you can experience another passion: The Ocean! We are so excited to host his book launch with a signing event in our tasting room. He’ll sign copies of his book, he’ll chat about his work, and he might even show us some photos from his research.
“The Remarkable Reefs of Cuba: Hopeful Stories from the Ocean Doctor” tells the story of the demise of the world’s ocean ecosystems, the hard work of those trying desperately to save it, and an unexpected beacon of hope from an island full of mystery and surprise.
