This year we’re doing a Verdelho, from Lodi. It’s a grape that a friend of mine grows, he’s of Portuguese descent. We’re paying eleven hundred dollars a ton, so it will probably retail for twelve, fourteen dollars. Why not do it under the Morgan label? We just feel like we have too many wines under the Morgan label. What happens in the marketplace is, a producer starts being known for doing one or two wines. We have four diªerent wines, diªerent permutations. You’re already at 40,000 cases. When does this start getting away from you?
Pinot is more like white wine, in that it has a substantial and very complex aroma. What’s the ﬁrst Pinot you made? At Mount Eden [ Vineyards, in the Santa Cruz Mountains]. I have some of that very clone at Meredith. How did you learn how to make Pinot? I had Dick Graª that ﬁrst year at Mount Eden. I just lucked out.

So by coming here, I perturbed a little bit the continuity of 32 1970 s the winemaking. This is true: when a winemaker leaves, the wine is suªering a little bit.
