Randy Ullom and I talk all things Chardonnay. Ever since the acronym ABC came to light 25 years ago in the NY Times, wine drinkers have debated this polarizing grape. We discuss the legacy of the world's most popular grape, and discover what the current wine world thinks on this topic. As well, we talk about Randy's entry into wine back in the 1970's, his degree in viticulture and enology, and he shares some fun stories about how he got the wine bug while skiing in Chile.
Winemaster Randy Ullom and his signature moustache have overseen the production of Kendal Jackson wines since 1997. As the winemaker for the number-one selling Chardonnay in America for 28 years, Randy is an authority on the subject. He’s been making wine since the 1970’s and with Kendall-Jackson for 28 harvests; he has perfected the winemaking techniques that other winemakers have mimicked for years.
Our audio conversation was recorded over Zoom video conferencing with Randy on his cell phone, pulled over in his car somewhere in Mendocino County, California. While his battery died.
Get ready for a fun conversation. Pull up a chair, grab a glass and enjoy!
