USA Today  is running a competition for “Best Wine Country Hotel.”  We urge everyone to vote for The Canyon Villa in Paso RoblesWe have stayed at this lovely place many times over the years.  And it has always been a first-class experience.  The new owners, William Carter and Katherine Bloxsom-Carter, have managed to improve what was already a terrific experience.

William and Katherine

Here’s the problem.  The Canyon Villa is currently in second place, trailing Gervasi Vineyard in Ohio.  Now we could stand losing to Oregon, Washington, or Virginia.  But OHIO?  When we were acquiring WineFan properties we didn’t even bother with OhioWineFan.

Disclaimer: we are doing a bit of work with William and Katherine getting their e-mail lists and processes up to date.

Tony Lima has been a California wine fan since arriving in California from the east coast in 1974. He's lived the growth and expansion of the industry first hand. He's seen the fickle California Wine consumer fads pop up and burst... the craze for Zinfandel, then oaky Chardonnay, then Merlot, now Pinot Noir. His day job was Professor of Economics at California State University located in Hayward. (He retired in 2016.) His undergrad degree in chemical engineering (MIT) and his MBA ( Harvard) and Ph.D. Economics (Stanford) are the root of his interest in the Business of Wine. He is a card-carrying member of the AAWE - American Association of Wine Economists.
