This is what we came for

While we were tasting Chuck McMinn dropped by to chat. While his and Anne's new home is under construction their personal cellar sits in laundry baskets scattered around the tasting room -- works for me. Chuck is a "graduate" of Silicon Valley -- Intel's product manager for the 8086 processor and founder of Covad. I wonder where would craft high end creative wine making be today had there not been the Silicon Valley originated capital transferred to Napa as an opposing force to the large international spirit/beverage enterprises.
