Grahm planting some of the first grapes at Popelouchum.
Visit Randall Grahm’s Restaurant Row and make something happen.
Our friend Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyard has launched a project, a “life’s work” kind of project, to create an original vineyard that in every way mines the attributes of place.
Hearing a winemaker speak of terroir has become meaningless. But that doesn’t mean that terroir is without meaning. Randall’s search for terroir is brilliant, far-reaching, and though hard to imagine, makes you want to imagine. The vineyard is being built at his new property in San Juan Bautista, and is called Popelouchum.
Read about it here, and consider supporting it. It is so rare to have the opportunity to support something actually original. There are perks involved. Note Randall’s very fine Restaurant Row.
