California in pictures: Sonoma and San Francisco

The second leg of our California tour took us to Sonoma, where we began with an exploration into the wines of the region at a masterclass given by Elaine Chukan Brown, who brought the subject to life with her energy and passion.

During her masterclass we got to try some of the top drops being made in Sonoma today, including a traditional method sparkling Zinfandel rosé made by Morgan Twain-Peterson MW, and a powerful but elegant Zin made by his dad, Joel Peterson, under the Once & Future label. Also wowing the crowd was a 2014 Ramey Syrah from Rodgers Creek Vineyard, which offered notes of sage, mint, dried flowers and leather.
