This week on the program meet Hugh Chappelle, winemaker for Quivira Vineyards in Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley.  Hugh’s a scientist who turned winemaker and he is definitely having more fun.  He makes a helluva Zinfandel, Grenache, Sauvignon Blanc, and more, which we’ll taste and discuss on the program.  To the native Americans Quivira meant “land of gold and riches”.  They knew what they were talking about.  Stay with us and you’ll see what we mean, and also Hugh gives us the best description of why all wines should be produced  biodynamically or organically.  It’ll change your thinking on
