Michael Richmond, General Manager and Executive Winemaker, Bouchaine Vineyards in the Carneros District - a winery that began making wine long before the region earned its reputation for producing the great Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of Carneros today. In 1981 when Gerret and Tatiana Copeland, and partners, purchased the winery and surrounding land, it was a time when only a few winemaking pioneers realized the potential for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Carneros. Michael Richmond, ‘Mr. Carneros’ was one of those pioneers. Richmond is a philosopher whose desire to explore new approaches in the vineyards and winemaking is tempered by over thirty years of history working in the Carneros district. Bacchus Wine Club is a good way to learn more and experience the small-lot Carneros terroir driven wines of Bouchaine vineyard and winemaking team. iWineRadio1040c

The Sinton family has been involved in the wine business for four generations with ties to Napa Valley icon Louis Martini.

Earl and Hilda Jones, proprietors, Abacela Vineyard and Winery, Roseburg, Oregon, named their winery after the “ancient Latin-Iberian verb ‘abacelar’ meaning to plant a vine,” in 1994. Earl Jones developed an appreciation of Spain’s Tempranillo as a young physician when he recognized that the affordable red wines of Spain, namely those from Rioja and Ribera Del Duero, paired seamlessly with his favorite foods. In addition to co-founding Abacela with his wife, Dr. Jones took his love-affair with Iberian cultivars and wines went one step further with the founding of TAPAS—Tempranillo Advocates, Producers and Amigos Society in 2003.
