Pinotage is "ultimate expression"

Quote of the month:

"If the focus of the winery is to delve in Burgundy and Rhone style grapes then I think the ultimate expression of that is to have Pinotage in the flavor mix. This coming spring we’ll release our first Pinotage".

    Pelican Ranch Winery's Pinotage won a gold medal at an August tasting held by the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Assoc. The grapes were sourced from the same Lodi vineyard, Vino Con Brio, you reference in a July post. Mike Matson is clearly on to something!
