Prospecting for Beautiful Wines with David Wilson

David Wilson is the co-founder of Wilson Foreigner & Director of Vineyards & Grower Relations at Pahlmeyer.

David grew up on the family ranch, Rancho Chimiles, where he resides now with his wife, Christine, and their two children. David studied fruit science with an emphasis on wine and viticulture at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. From working harvest in South Africa to learning directly from Warren Winiarski at Stags Leap Winery, he's cut his teeth around the world.

In this episode, David & I dig into his story and background, he tells us the history behind his family’s ranch, Rancho Chimiles in Wooden Valley, and we discuss the concept of a California terroir. We then chat about his new wine label, Wilson Foreigner, which makes Valdigué from the same vineyard as Michael Cruse, Albarino from the Rorick Vineyard, and Zinfandel from the Del Barba Vineyard.
