Jamie Drummond and Friends on Wine – Episode 15 Paul Draper (Ridge)

In January of 2008 I was wandering around one of the huge halls at the massive ZAP tasting in San Francisco when I came across the iconic Winemaker Paul Draper of Ridge pouring his wine and being harassed by some rather intoxicated Zin fanatics. I suggested that we wander outside for a little while and record a podcast, a suggestion that he happily embraced. The results of our chat are what is recorded here, and listening to it once again raises quite a few smiles as I remember just how much Zinfandel I had “tasted” at this point in the proceedings. There is also quite a surreal sequence involving a spaced-out passerby towards the end of the interview… oh the miraculous powers of Zinfandel.
