Lettie Teague Needs to Get Out More


Lettie Teague is the wine columnist for the Wall Street Journal.  Her latest effort bears the title “Our Favorite California Wine Region (That No One Knows About).” Reading a bit we discovered she was talking about the Santa Lucia Highlands.  A quick search shows 20 articles posted here that at least mention this justifiably famous AVA.  And, of course, we covered the Santa Lucia Highlands gala in 2014 and 2016.

Ms. Teague should really stick to writing about European and east coast wines.  We will, of course, point her to Virginia as the home of some excellent pinot noirs.

About the author

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.
