“Slowly, I encountered other winemakers with similar beliefs. I found people who remained committed to restrained, compelling wines that spoke clearly of their origins — and who shared my frustration with California’s modern style.

Jon Bonné“Some… had been toiling for decades; others were upstarts with the same energy and ambition as the pioneers from previous generations. Eventually, the brushstrokes began to turn into something recognizable: the seeds of a new movement, a new California wine in the making.”

These words appear in the introduction to The New California Wine, the just-released book from Jon Bonné of the San Francisco Chronicle.

To say I’m excited about Jon’s book would be an understatement. The wines that fill the pages are both compelling and delicious – and all the producers he highlights deserve the attention. This weekend, wine geeks on the east coast are in for quite a treat as Jon is visiting both New York and DC.

On Saturday, Jon will discuss his book with Abe Schoener at Red Hook Winery in Brooklyn. Buy tickets here. I’ll be at this event – so if you go, come say hello!

That evening, Jon will visit Terroir in Murray Hill to discuss his book with superstar Paul Grieco. While the event is sold out, the waitlist is open.

On Sunday, Jon will visit Washington, DC! Together with Cordial Wine at Union Market, Jon will discuss his book with Dave McIntyre of the Washington Post. Just a few tickets are left, so get on it!

That evening, Jon is hosting an intimate wine dinner at Plume, one of DC’s top restaurants. To snag a seat, call 202-448-2300.
