Politicians are in the valley, too. San Francisco Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul own two vineyard parcels totaling 24.62 acres, of which approximately 9 acres are grapes.
They must not have a name yet, plus I read that they sell to other retailers...

The approval of Pelosi's vineyard, partial sale of another that may have been polluting the local river and a few other "mysteries" have a few people upset. A non liberal connected vineyard owner might be in severe trouble if they did some of what has been rumored.
In the past 3 decades, super rich elite limo rats have bought vineyards in the Sonoma/Napa areas. Robert Redford is one of many. Contributions by many of these left wingers have enabled the local pro commy/Islamo congressit, Mike Thompson to make trips to celebrate Fidel's birthday and his trip to Iraq and not worry about re election. Many of these elite vineyard/winemakers make the French look like good allies.
