Jamie and Peter Franus after the tasting

Last month I was simply delighted to hear that my old friend Peter Franus was in town. Peter has been making superb wines in Califonia for over 30 years and certainly has quite a different take on matters than many of his contemporaries. Having always greatly enjoyed Peter’s company, it was great to sit down and chat with him about his great wines, the impact that the global financial crisis has had upon Napa Valley wines, the increased use of technology in the winemaking process, and all manner of other things vinous…

Edinburgh-born/Toronto-based Sommelier, consultant, writer, judge and educator Jamie Drummond is the Director of Programs/Editor of Good Food Revolution… and he was most happy to catch up with Mr. Franus.
