Homage to Sommeliers

Los Angeles Restaurant KitchenLast week found me on my semi-annual trip to Los Angeles to work with wine directors and sommeliers. 3 days, 26 restaurants, 452 miles. What did I hear?

My favorite quote? “Hafner overdelivers quality for the price.”

Here is my itinerary for a day in Cloverdale.

Since Day One at Hafner Vineyard, we have focused on minimizing our impact on the environment and farming our 100 acres with the intention of preserving the soil's health for future generations. We were excited that the Winegrowers had sparked this movement, so we joined them. Annually the Winegrowers publish a Sustainability Report detailing the county's progress. We are honored to be included... twice!
