Welcome to the Golden State! The state's nickname comes from its history with prospecting for gold, and did you know that history helped shape California into the wine state that it is today? We’ll discuss the history of wine in California, the rise and fall of interest in particular grape varieties (Merlot! Zinfandel! Pinot Noir!), and how serious winemakers are seeking out forgotten sites planted pre-phylloxera and prohibition to craft elegant, thoughtful wines with intention. It's almost hard to find a grape or area California winemakers haven't explored. We'll cover a variety of California wines, from ultra-natural/non-interventionist wine making to off-the-wall grape varieties, off-the-beaten-path vineyards, and some of our classic favorites. Join us as we explore the emerging stars and regions that are revolutionizing the California wine scene, and the historical figures who made it great.
