Washington Wine Tasting - Bonny Doon Vineyards

Wine Tasting - Bonny Doon Vineyards
with Ray Bloom of Vinum Wines
Saturday wine tasting with Ray Bloom

 Based in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California's Central Coast, Bonny Doon Vineyard was founded by Randall Grahm in 1983. It was among the first Californian wineries to embrace Rhone varietals and earned Grahm status as a founding "Rhone Ranger."

 Known for its wildly untraditional labels, including illustrations by Ralph Steadman, Grady McFerrin, and Gary Taxali, the winery continues to innovate by embracing lesser known Italian varietals, screw caps, and biodynamic production.
