Joe Riley Posted March 2, 2006 Share Posted March 2, 2006 So my thread about the Bonny Doon wine dinner with Randall Grahm is with the Chef Geoff's thread now, but I wanted to expound upon these wines a bit. I've heard criticism of Bonny Doon Vineyards (and the various projects under their umbrella) for years, as Randall Grahm bravely went outside the lines of established California wine varietals to craft his singular vision for what California was also capable of growing. Some of this criticism also involved their eye-catching labels and marketing strategies. In their defense, I have to say that the labels may get people to buy the wines, but unless the wines deliver the goods, then they will not get repeat business. From their early beginnings as a cult-ish winery with a devoted following, they are now a fairly large (over 100,000 cases per year) winery, with an even MORE devoted and loyal following. I can't do a better job describing the wines they sell better than Randall can. On their website, www.BonnyDoonVineyards.com you can immerse yourself in an interesting wine education. I'm a fan of those Eurodoon wines that they are selling, bringing in wines from Italy and France, also. I'll try to post some impressions of each wine individually as soon as I can.
