The Wineries of Santa Clara Valley have launched a new web site and asked me to write for them. My first piece is now up; it's a brief history of the Santa Clara Valley AVA focusing mainly on the 20 years since the AVA was founded and the wineries that are active today. I'd welcome any feedback, updates and corrections.
It seems I'm no longer the only person writing about the Valley - over on Examiner.com Steve Ferree has recently started covering the area. He's got articles on Jason/Stephens, Martin Ranch, Monte Verde and Satori. Check them out.
Meanwhile, over on the Mercury News, Laurie Daniel has a piece on Randall Grahm and his new project in San Juan Bautista.
