The Blackboard

What’s fresh in Sonoma Valley.

“It often takes the shock of the unexpected to make you reconsider something you thought you already knew. It had been years since I’d tasted the wines of @gunbunwine, one of the oldest producers in California and helmed today by the sixth generation of the Bundschu family. I hadn’t stopped drinking the wines for any reason other than simple mathematics: With so much in the world of wine to taste, it’s far too easy to forget about old favorites. Interestingly, however, it wasn’t Gundlach Bundschu per se that led me back to an appreciation for what they’ve always done so well. Rather, it was the new brand, @abbotspassage, begun by Katie Bundschu, that focuses on blends from throughout Sonoma. In particular, the “Sightline” 2017 made me perk up and start paying attention again.” — @fdtreport reports today on @forbes 🍷 🍇 #sonomavalleywine #therootsrundeep @katieb426 #repost: @thejamescollective
