Blast from the Past: A Glass at Copain

If you're planning on tasting in or around Healdsburg and the Russian River Valley, Copain offers one of the better views around. Their winemaker Wells Guthrie has also been one of the driving forces behind the lower alcohol movement in California wines, especially Pinot Noir.  Of course, lower alcohol levels can't come about simply by a winemaker making that choice (yes, they do have some control after all) but setting the goal of being more French in style has forced Copain to look at some of the coolest growing sites in California.  All in all, it's one of our favorite places to taste in Sonoma and would suggest it to anyone on their next trip to Northern California wine country.
