Sonoma Group Explores Marriage Of Wine And Weed


The proper pairing of wine with weed will be explored in Sonoma tomorrow. Former winemaker and now cannabis farmer Mike Benziger is the featured speaker at a regular meeting of Sonoma Valley Cannabis Enthusiasts at the Hop Monk Tavern at 3:00 Tuesday afternoon. Benziger is expected to talk about how bio-dynamic farming methods apply to both wine grapes and marijuana and how both products can be best consumed together. For instance, Benziger suggests pairing a spicy and fruity Pinot Noir with a cannabis strain known as Blood Orange and a robust Cabernet Sauvignon with Bubba Kush, which has aromas of coffee and herbs.
