Dusty Baker: California Gold Country Winemaker
For one famous Placer County
vintner, the release of that first sweet, fruity syrah was the precursor of a much bigger splash.
When your name is Dusty Baker
and you’re hired at about the same time last month as new manager of the Washington Nationals baseball team, the rookie vintage of vino coming fromGranite Bay
is dropped a little further down the batting order.
But for the Baker brand and Placer County
’s growing wine industry, the limited release is still a big step forward.
Baker’s Baker Family Wines released its $60 a bottle syrah last month. San Francisco Treasure Island Urban Winery is in partnership to stock it at its Treasure Island winery and tasting room inSan Francisco.
