Explore The New California Wine with famed wine writer Jon Bonne on this week's episode of In the Drink. As the wine editor for the San Francisco Chronicle, Jon has won a regional following in the Bay Area as well as national recognition as one of the most important voices in the wine community. Host Joe Campanale and Jon Bonne discuss the untold story of the California wine industry: the young, innovative producers who are rewriting the rules of contemporary winemaking; their quest to express the uniqueness of California terroir; and the continuing battle to move the state away from the overly-technocratic practices of its recent past. This program has been sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.
"The new buzz word [in wine] is diversity. My argument would be that there should be a diversity of styles that can be made in a traditional way and don't require dark magic in the cellar." [14:00]
