Sonoma’s Best’s Wine Director, Todd Jolly, welcomed the members and winemakers of the Historical Vineyard Society, a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of California’s historic vineyards, to a walkaround tasting, sampling wines from these vineyards. Meanwhile, the hosts hunkered down in a corner of Sonoma’s Best to taste the wines and meet with the winemakers. Listen in as they talk about these legendary California vineyards with Joel Peterson of Once & Future Wine, and Mike Officer, Carlisle Winery, and many more.
