Presented by the Lake County Winegrape Commission
Hosted by Wine Enthusiast Contributing Editor, Jim Gordon
“Volcanic wines” is an emerging category of wines that is as fascinating as it is rare, and yet little understood. How do volcanic soils influence the growth and production of various wines? What challenges do volcanics soils present? What qualities do they impart to wines like Cabernet Sauvignon?

A Note From Our Sponsor: Established in 1991, the Lake County Winegrape Commission (LCWC) has been instrumental in developing the Lake County region’s unwavering commitment to farming high-quality winegrapes. Lake County’s landscape is dominated by Mt. Konocti and other mountains in the Clear Lake Volcanic Field. Volcanic eruptions in the region as late as 11,000 years have created some of the youngest volcanic soils in California.
