Sunday Read: Crazy Riesling (and Other) Stats

Just a quick pointer today: Stuart Pigott, a German-speaking English Riesling maniac, came across a 1964 encyclopedia of wine written by Frank Schoonmaker and it contains some amazing stats and information, especially on the California wine industry in the 1960s.

Spoiler alert: There were less acres planted with Chardonnay than Riesling in California back then…it’s a very interesting read!

Happy Sunday!
