James talks with Carlo Mondavi, the founder of Raen Winery in Sonoma Coast, California, about the role site and microflora play in imbuing Raen wines with their coastal California characteristics.
"This is very California terroir," Carlo tells James. "Those beautiful trees, flowers, the grasses ... even the dirt that comes up and comes into contact with the vines and the clusters during the final weeks of their evolution on the vine, and then we have this beautiful coast here that creates this incredible environment."
"We love the fog, and it really just creates such a combination of great geology site and microflora, which i think for me leads to wines of incredible expression."
Have a listen to all Carlo's thoughts on Raen's recent vintages and their varying personalities.
