Hedonism Meets... Ted Lemon

Posted by Hedonism Wines

Ted Lemon is one California's most famous and acclaimed winemakers. A passionate, driven oenologist with a deep understanding of agriculture and experience making Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at some of Burgundy's greatest domaines, Ted became the first American to run a Burgundian estate in the form of Domaine Guy Roulot in Meursault. A move back to the USA and a period of working with many great winemakers in Napa led him to found his own winery in the early 1990s, and the rest is history.

We sat down with Ted to discuss Californian terroir, pioneering winemaking in the Anderson Valley and the importance of "generative agriculture".
