gastrotommy – Jim Clendenen, The Legendary Winemaker
Jim is the proud owner and winemaker at Au Bon Climat. Where so many producers get one good review and radically increase the price of their wines, Jim has continued to produce some of the world’s great wines. He is especially well known for his Pinot Noir and Chardonnays. However, he makes a wide array of wines from a number of different grapes. Jim is brilliant, affable and informative. On our gastrotommy site, we are proud to offer a number of Jim’s wines at a discount. Enjoy the discussion we provide with an old friend.
