SFChron: Esther on SteveEdmunds

by TomHill » Mon Mar 12, 2018 3:55 pm

SFChron Link:
http://www.sfgate.com/wine/article/Steve-Edmunds-is-the-unsung-hero-of-California-12746843.php?t=f2e13224fc

I love Esther's characterization of Steve's speech: "conspicuously free of glottal stops". I had to look that one up.
I especially liked the comment:
PatrickComiskey wrote:“If Randall Grahm brought the flash to the Rhone movement, Steve Edmunds brought the soul,” writes author Patrick Comiskey in “American Rhone,” the definitive history on this subject. Edmunds supplied “a framework for authenticity that faithfully served the movement through its early years and provided a kind of moral compass,” he continues.

The article (rightfully) gives credit to RonMansfield for his wines from ElDorado.
The article mentions "no marketing manager". Either it was an oversight to not mention Steve's marketing director, PamAnderson,
or Steve was too embarrassed to mention her. But when she's pouring at the EdmundsStJohn pouring table and leans over
to make the pour...the sales skyrocket.
Should I mention I've followed Steve from the very start...when his wnry was out back of the Oaks Card Shop in Emeryville??

Anyway, one of Esther's best articles about a guy we all know & love.

Very nice article! Just got around to reading the Sunday Chronicle. I am even intrigued by his Americana/Bluegrass band. A genre of music I can find appealing!

Well, now, that’s great stuff. It’s especially nice to hear the younger generation giving props where props are due!

And the new album is out! Gotta get a copy and open something from the library sale while listening to it.
cheers, Patchen

Just a coincidence but Steve & his charming wife were here for dinner the night before the article was released in the SF Chronicle.
(Actually Steve and his charming wife Cornelia) I have to mention that "old timer" JBL and his charming wife were also among the guests. It was cassoulet time and we all had a very good evening.
The full two page spread on Steve was very well done IMHO. :D :D
