California is a huge state and makes up 90% of wine production in the United States. This week we tackle this great state that put U.S. winemaking on the map. A special thanks to Magnus, a listener from Sweden, who brought it to my attention that we had to get on it and tackle California.
Here's a link to the show: LINK
...and the show summary:
- We start with a story about a corked wine we had and M.C. Ice explains his experience of it.
- We tackle an excellent listener question about why high alcohol wines don't age well.
- Then we hit the major quality winemaking areas of California from north to south, giving an overview (or maybe a little more than an overview) of each:
- The Central Coast
- And then we touch on the Sierra Foothills, the Central Valley, Southern California, and a mention a few others.
