"The Good Stuff"

What is "The Good Stuff?"
Chronicles of the Sonoma County Winegrowers

A new weekly series inspired by the good works of Sonoma County’s winegrowing community, written by noted journalist Virginie Boone, “The Good Stuff” will tell the stories of Sonoma County farmers from the ground up with a glass-half-full perspective.

Home to a billion-dollar wine industry, Sonoma County is also made up of a vast swath of multigenerational family farms, some 1,800 grape growers, who grow a wide variety of wine grapes, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Merlot, some 66 varieties in all.

The first wine region to become 100% sustainable, Sonoma County is committed to environmental stewardship, social responsibility and economic viability and remains one of the most diverse, dynamic and resilient regions in America. We’ll tell those stories in “The Good Stuff”, beginning August 10, 2022.
