Hazards of the job include purple teeth, daily interaction with fruit flies, the ever-present smell of yeast and fermenting grapes and the very real possibility that a year’s worth of work could end up tasting like grape juice—or maybe becoming a cult classic that you spend the rest of your life trying to recreate. Such is the life of a winemaker, yet each year more and more flock to the valley to make a go of the Wine Country lifestyle. Thank goodness. There are hundreds of wineries in the counties immediately north of San Francisco, each creating something slightly different than their neighbors—which is one of the reasons that makes California wine so special.
