SFChron: Bonne on Livermore/Kalin

Postby TomHill » Wed Aug 14, 2013 2:27 pm

Some interesting articles by JohnBonne in the SFChron on:
LivermoreWhites: SFChron:LivermoreWhites
and TerryLeighton/Kalin:

Terry & his wife have made a Semillon for yrs that ranks right up there with the greats....from the HunterVlly and ClareVlly.

Talking about the RubyHill property, Terry's first Semillon source, he refers to Harry&Len Rosignana, the two brothers who leased it from SouthernPacific. I amazed that Jon had the sense of history that Len went on to become a pioneer in the NewMexico wine industry. His first winemaker at RubyHill was LannyReplogle, now of Fenestra. His 2'nd winemaker was ??, who went on to become a wine consultant and started a mead operation. The old RubyHill/StonyRidge was a very old bldg and a dump. It eventually burned to the ground. The vines were ripped. The RubyHill wnry was "rebuilt" and now used primarily for weddings.

I think the Kalin wines are really fascinating, both "interesting" and tasty/
