Bonny Doon Vineyard
Randall Grahm has been a tireless champion of the grapes of the Rhône since the inaugural vintage of Le Cigare Volant in 1984. In 1989, Randall appeared on the cover of the Wine Spectator, clad in blue polyester, as "The Rhône Ranger." In 1994 he was proclaimed Wine and Spirits Professional of the Year by the James Beard Foundation and was inducted into the Culinary Institute of America's Vintner's Hall of Fame in 2009. He has published an award-winning book, "Been Doon So Long: A Randall Grahm Vinthology." He dwells obsessively on the prospect of producing an authentic vin de terroir in the New World.
