Randall Grahm, the visionary behind Santa Cruz’s Bonny Doon Vineyard has always followed his own path.
When Chardonnay dominated, he fostered a thirst for lesser-known Rhone varietals.
When he opened his tasting room, it wasn’t in the faux Mediterranean style so en vogue, but a most quirky spot adorned with spaceships.
Now, leave it to him to think outside the box again by veering into the realm of hard-cider making.
His Bonny Doon ¿Querry?, which I had a chance to sample, is not your usual sparkling alcoholic apple cider.
