In the Napa Valley, those in the know say that sommelier Lisa Minucci has a great palate when it comes to wine. What many people may not know, however, is that she also has great taste when it comes to design. Her Heritage Culinary Artifacts store in Napa’s Oxbow market (which is a hub for local, gourmet food and sustainable produce) has a great array of kitchen items and a few pieces of furniture that she has collected from her travels to Europe and from traversing the states. Of particular note are her vintage Belgian lamps, French copper pans, and selection of midwest linens, not to mention an array of cleavers, knives, and meat hooks. Photos by Michael McDermott.
