4/12 Larry Van Aalst talks with Rene Byck & Scot Covington

Rene Byck - Co-owner, Paradise Ridge Winery

Being Co-owner of Paradise Ridge winery in Santa Rosa Ca, is a dream job for sure. With his brother in law Dan Barwick making award winning wines, support from the entire family, and one of the most beautiful wineries in the United States, Rene is sitting on top of the world. Located at the north end of Santa Rosa, the winery and vineyards are one of the most popular spots for events in the wine country. There is a long list of special reasons to visit throughout the year, the outdoor Art Garden is beyond compare. As one of the extraordinary venues for weddings, you can't miss, when you are in Sonoma County, stopping at Paradise Ridge.

 Scot Covington - Winemaker, Trione Winery

Just outside of Geyserville in the Alexander Valley, Scot is the Winemaker at Trione Winery. With a long history in Sonoma County the Trione Family found a gem  of a winemaker in Scot and he is producing wines winning major awards. A world traveler, with a degree from Fresno State, the choice to premier the winery with Scot at the helm has worked perfectly. We talk about the Sonoma scene and what is happening with the 2017 vintage.
