Shortlist is dedicated to uncovering the most unique experiences in San Francisco and Napa Valley, and distilling them into an annual publication. Our photography-driven content showcases the places, people, and events that make the Bay Area a mainstay for influence and culture. The book speaks to a wide audience, from the Bay Area native to the curious visitor. Shortlist exists for luxurious, travel-minded individuals who are interested in bespoke products, sophisticated design, artisanal food and wine, and fine arts.


Launched by Heidi Gerpheide (Publisher of California Homes, Founder & Publisher of The Connoisseur’s Guide Los Angeles, President of Bellus Press) in 2013, Shortlist is focused on building strategic partnerships with San Francisco and Napa Valley’s most visionary influencers. Some of our partners in Edition No. 1 include the Napa Valley Vintner’s Association, Bonhams Auction House, The Restaurant at Meadowood, Calistoga Ranch, and the 34th America’s Cup.
