Gurvinder Talks Napa

By / Wine + Drinks / August 27th, 2012 / 3

In today’s installement, Tidings writer and Contributing Editor Gurvinder Bhatia sits down with winemaker and General Manager Christophe Paubert of Stags’ Leap Winery in Napa, California. What’s caught Gurvinder’s fascination this time? Stags’ Leap Viognier, retailing for $32. That land has been growing grapes, olives and all manner of other fruits and vegetables since the late 1880s. Stags’ Leap, named after the spot on the edge of a cliff where stags are said to have leapt to their deaths, also sits on volcanic soil which is believed to enrich the plants growing in it.



Editor-in-chief for Quench Magazine, Gurvinder Bhatia left a career practising law to pursue his passion for wine and food. Gurvinder is also the wine columnist for Global Television Edmonton, an international wine judge and the president of Vinomania Consulting.
