In this segment I visit Micah and Adrian in Forestville, Sonoma County. They just opened their tasting room this Spring and have been named a “winery to watch”. If you like Pinot Noir and Zinfandel be sure to add them to your list. Click to hear their story…
On Monday, August 24th, I woke up early, put on my yard-work clothes and headed out to participate in a harvest, a pruning, and grape sorting at a winery. Hear the people and sounds I encountered along the way during this
year’s early harvest. Click the audio player below.
Below you see winemaker Greg LaFollette at the sorting table; me after a long morning of sorting in the vineyard, pruning, sanitizing two large fermentation tanks, stacking a pallet of 56 cases of wine, and sorting incoming grapes (I loved it); A bleary-eyed Greg and Michelle Renee Mozell, who joined me that morning; Ken and Melissa Moholt-Siebert who own Ancient Oak Cellars and the Siebert Ranch who’s grapes we sorted at Owl Ridge Winery; and the view from the DuNah Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast wine region.
Wine isn’t the only indulgence we have here in NorCal, there are world-class restaurants in nearly every town in Sonoma and Napa Counties. This is one of our favorites – Bravas, the Spanish tapas themed restaurant in Healdsburg. I chat with general manager Christina Rivera-Glenn about all they have to offer.
