The two most exciting figures in wine in California gather onstage Tuesday, April 3 for what promises to be a very exciting wine conversation event.
The dynamic combination of Bonny Doon's Randall Grahm (left), founder of the Rhone Rangers, author of Been Doon So Long and proprietor of Bonny Doon Vineyard together onstage with French wine importer Kermit Lynch, (right) proprietor of Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant and author of the French wine book Adventures on the Wine Route: A Wine Buyer's Tour of France, should be fun.
One conversation between the two is also chronicled in the book An Ideal Wine by David Darlington.
Years earlier, Kermit famously suggested (decades ago) that Grahm try growing Rhone varietals in California, since the climate here was much more akin to that of the Rhone region in France (as compared to Bordeaux or Burgundy for example, where many of the varietals grown in northern and central California come from) - and the rest is history as Rhone varietals spawned a new era in California winemaking.
