***** from Jenny Francois

Where’s Linus? is born….this time in Northern California. Where he’s heading we’ll have to wait and see.

A cloudy Sauvignon, with a breezy citrus California vibe, made by a very smart, philosophical winemaker named Chris Christensen.

Chris Christensen never thought winemaking was an actual career path that people who weren’t born into a winery or vineyard could pursue, until he went on a wine tasting trip to the Sonoma Valley his Junior year at Stanford. From then on he was hooked on the idea of working at a winery. And here he still is, making wine, (minus the one year, one month, and 19 days he spent working in banking, thinking he had to graduate to a “real” job).  As an African American vintner, Chris works to promote diversity and inclusion in the wine industry through speaking engagements, podcasts and mentorship opportunities for aspiring vintners and winery owners.
