Going there next weekend.
The CA wine industry owes a lot to him thats for sure.
He is to California wine as Brigham Young is to Latter Day Saints....he didn't start it, but he certainly was the most influential....
The tasting there is a little expensive but worth it
Sorry to see him go
I had the previliage of meeting him once at his winery. His winery hosted a lunch for my wife and I as we were touring Opus one and his winery. He just got back from a trip to Chile and although he was obviously tired came over and said hi and thanked us for coming to visit his winery. A truly class act guy and he will be missed by all in the wine industry.
Was just there up a few months ago.
