The Napa Valley, a once rustic farming community, is becoming overrun with rich people and corporations who are failing as stewards of  the land  -- at least according to author James Conaway. The former wine columnist says today's vintners are not only taking over Napa Valley land, they’re also making mediocre wine. Conaway joins Forum to talk about the final book is his Napa trilogy, “Napa at Last Light: America’s Eden in an Age of Calamity".
