It was time to revisit California and review and retaste – what made this a great wine region? It was a very interesting visit- amidst a large amount of generic, ordinary wines, there were a few that stood out. These were true to my ideals of winemaking and gave the area its name and flavor. The rest was a great lesson in marketing! I realized that there was no myth or mystery about these great wines- just good winemaking. We were all capable of making such great wines, and so, the seed to Grapes of Roth and Wolffer Premier Cru took root.
