Jon Bonné, Wine Editor, San Francisco Chronicle; Author, The New California Wine
The New California Wine is the untold story of the Golden State's wine industry. James Beard Award-winning wine editor Bonné introduces us to the innovative producers who are rewriting the rules of contemporary winemaking. From their quest to express the uniqueness of California terroir to the continuing battle to move the state away from the overly-technocratic, reactionary practices of the recent past, Bonné takes us to the front lines of the California wine revolution. Join us as he shares the fascinating stories, philosophies and techniques of the iconoclastic young winemakers who are changing the face of California viticulture, and then sip and swill with the best of them at our wine tasting reception.
