On this show I welcomed the return of Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa. After more than two years they’re Hospitality Center is open and pouring their delightful Sonoma County wines. I talk with owner Rene Byck about the challenges they faced following the 2017 wildfire. He also offered some news about upcoming changes you’re likely to see.
I also begin my several week coverage of the Zinfandel Advocates and Producers’ (ZAP) ZinEX2020, coming up at the end of the month in San Francisco. My first Zinfandel producer is Joe and Travis of Ramazzotti Wines in Geyserville. You’ll learn about their history and hear about the interesting Italian varietals they bottle.
