Sonoma Wine Country Scores A New Pot Of Gold


I write about the multi-leveled wine industry as well as wine history.  Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

It seems like only yesterday California’s Humboldt County claimed or had been given the mantle cannabis capital of the state. Some have said more cannabis grows in Humboldt County than any other crop in the county or in any other county; salon.com called it not just California’s but America’s marijuana capital.

Was Humboldt County’s crowning premature? Was the Emerald Trianglemantle as the artisanal cannabis capital given to Humboldt, Trinity and Mendocino counties premature as well?

Read Peter Fimrite of the San Francisco Chronicle and it’s easy to think Sonoma County situated almost 300 miles south of Humboldt may be catching up.
