Mediation Center

The Weinstein Mediation Center in Napa, California

Recognizing that the venue for a mediation session can have a large impact on the mediation’s effectiveness, Judge Daniel Weinstein created the Weinstein Mediation Center in the heart of Napa Valley. Located on the grounds of the Honig Vineyard & Winery – a family-owned, sustainable vineyard with scenic views all around – the Mediation Center has a fully equipped conference room, office suite, and even a wine tasting room to accommodate guests.

While The Weinstein Melnick Team is available to conduct mediations around the globe, parties might choose to take advantage of the Weinstein Mediation Center’s idyllic setting to become as Judge Weinstein describes, “more focused, more cordial with each other, and perhaps slightly more incentivized to reach agreement.”
