We love California's Napa Valley & Russian River Valley, but these famous wine regions often come with a high price tag to match. We've decided to explore some of the lesser known and up and coming regions; many with old, established vines producing fantastic grapes and wine, often from young and revolutionary winemakers pushing the envelope with organic and biodyanmic farming and a more artisanal approach to winemaking. We'll discuss the history of California to understand where we are, and then we'll highlight alternative grape varieties including Charbono, Carignan, Trousseau, Roussanne, etc., wine growing regions like Sierra Foothills, Lodi, Livermore, and others, and producers who are shepherds of these vines and areas. We'll taste 6 examples of Alternative California wines, with complimentary cheese.
