Culinary Travels Marching Through Mendocino-Fetzer and Parducci
Not nearly as famous as its wine-producing neighbors of Sonoma and Napa County, Mendocino County nonetheless has a long and proud winemaking tradition. And, in these days where greener is better, Mendocino is about as green as it gets. On this show, I’ll highlight three of the most prominent Mendocino producers: Fetzer, Bonterra, and Parducci. We’ll see how Fetzer and Bonterra continue to make better wine with each passing vintage, and we’ll learn how new money and a new vision is breathing new life in the venerable Parducci label. I’ve also got time for a visit to an organic market and for some fantastic food and wine pairings at a standout local restaurant.
