    I had the pleasant surprise of drinking the Coturri Zin at a restaurant in San Francisco about 8 years ago and was so blown away I bought a case. Also talked to Tony when I called the winery to place the order. Very nice guy. I highly recommend his wines.

    Tony is a gentleman and really cares about his wines,the earth and especially the consumer. Great show Gary, I think you might make it big with this format!

    So did you end up stocking those wines and how have they done?

    Have to revisit the link up from episode #721. I didn’t much like this episode when I first viewed it, but after seeing more episodes and caring more about wine in general, I found this to be very interesting on re-watch. Tony seems like a good, if pretty low-key, guy.

    I love the artwork on the last bottle! Tony’s comment about bringing the wine to American palates really showed me that this guy knows what he’s doing.

    :) Not that anything else in the interview said didn’t.

    Thanks for the pointer to this episode, I’ve tried to hit all of the gaps but this one slipped through. As someone who makes wine at home, I have to say that the winemaker interviews are very interesting and quite invaluable where even the smallest tidbits of information are shared. Please keep them coming.

    Tony Coturri! Nice guest Gary. I carry a couple of his wines where I work as well, the albarello and one of his pinot’s.
    Nice to see you tasting his charbono on there as well. I’ve done a decent bit of research on charbono, and have heard a few stories as to its origins (not unlike the different stories concerning where zinfandel came from.). But I’ve never heard about it being a cross between nebbiolo and grenache, curious.
    I’ve only had the Coturri charbono one time, I don’t remember being blown away by it. At the time, the Summer’s had been all I had to compare it to at that point, if memory serves. I do remember that acidity on it that you guys remarked on. But I also remember the color being quite a bit lighter than I had expected. Although it wasn’t the 04 vintage like you guys tasted, it was either the 05 or 06.
    Anway, another great episode, would love to see you dedicate an episode to charbono, and do a tasting. Maybe stack the Coturri up against the Summer’s and few other of the small handful of producers making charbono.

    Tony was a great guest, a man of the earth..or still a hippie..but a smart one. His wines sound interesting, will seek them out. http://www.winelx.com

    Never hear of this producer but seems to be doing things out of belief rather than market and trend, seems to make more old world style wines which shows that its possible to do sin in Cali. I like it

    One word; Biodynamics! This is a great area the wine world is going. I first discovered this type of wine making with Quintessa in Rutherford. Wow. Dedication to the grapes, and the earth.
