In 1989 John's job took him to California and an idea was born which would pull these diverse facts together. Following his divorce, John was a little lost. The only things that made sense to him were home, the family farm and family. It took a while for John to convince Jim that he was serious about starting a winery. (Being taken serious is a bit of a problem for John.) The boys planted some grape vines in Ella's (their mother) old garden patch in 1996. Add a lot of time and Jim's hands, some beginner's wine equipment and a lot of frozen raspberries from Ella's broken freezer and Wilson Wines began to take shape. Through it all Dick watched and helped despite his skepticism. John and his new wife, Debbie, decided a ham bean supper was a good way to give away their amateur wines. All the Wilson's invited everyone they knew. The annual Modoc Meadows Follies began. What a hoot! People loved the wine, loved the winery idea and enjoyed the show that the family put on in the barn Read more »

  • Greece, Spain, Turkey or France? It's hard to predict the world's next “it” wines; one might as well be using a crystal ball to predict the weather. However, this past week an Irish Times columnist gave his predictions about where the world's next favorite wines will come from in 2015. Reporter John Wilson said this year's predicted favorites wi... Read More

  • Oh dear, more good French wines well under $20, even after import across the Atlantic. I'm liking Chambers Street more and more, the more I visit their offerings. These guys seem to understand wine in ways that I do and like. In their essay below there's a link to a current Asimov article on Muscadet. It's also well worth jumping to and reading.... Read More

Williams-Selyem was first produced in a garage in Forestville. Timeline1970’s Burt and Ed begin making wine in a garage in Forestville. Some of their first fruit is from local grower Leno Martinelli; Zinfandel from 84-year old vines grown on Jackass H... Read More

  • I don't utter those words easily (homemade wine). Personally, I think it's crap and that there's no such thing as GREAT homemade wine.I was wondering what some of your stories and/or responses are with and when offered said crap.I occasionally am offered a bottle (because wine may come up in conversation with acquaintances or clients) and I resp...

  • Thanks for the warm welcome.  I have not been to C.G. DiArie.  I was a member of the wine club of that winery when it was Bella Piazza and I loved their Primitivo.  I checked out the website and read about the new owner.  Guess I will have to go visit!  Both the wineries you mention are a little farther north from me.  I live in Sonora and I am ...
