Tasting the New California Wines with Jon Bonné

Jon Bonné, Wine Editor, San Francisco Chronicle; Author, The New California Wine

Bonné brings us the untold story of the California wine industry. From the front lines of the California wine revolution, he shares the fascinating stories, philosophies and techniques of the innovative producers who are rewriting the rules of contemporary winemaking. Learn more about their quest to express the uniqueness of California terroir and the continuing battle to move the state away from the overly technocratic, reactionary practices of its recent past. Meet some of these iconoclastic young winemakers who are changing the face of California viniculture and taste some of the finest wines from the Santa Cruz Mountains.
