Raventos Codorniu Sparkling & Greg LaFollette’s New Venture

On this show, the delightful Ana Diogo-Draper of Artesa Vineayrds and Winery in Napa Valley’s Carneros region joins me with talk about the new sparkling wine being produced by their parent company, Raventós Codorníu. Although they are the oldest winegrowing business in Spain, they’re using California grapes for their new sparkling, Incandesa Brut. Ana has a hand in making the wine and shares details of the stylish Spanish bubbly.

And you’ll hear winemaker Greg LaFollette of Alquimista Cellars presented breaking news about his TWO new brands, GLF and Marchelle Wines. Greg has been referred to as alchemist, a vine whisperer and other appropriate descriptors. The news of two new, lower cost wines was well worth sharing.
