Smoking Winemakers

Dedicated Cigar Smokers Puff Away in California's Vineyards
Anthony Dias Blue
From the Print Edition:
George Burns, Winter 94/95

(continued from page 3)

Napa and Sonoma have not experienced the explosion in cigar smoking that is evident in other places. But there are enough cigar lovers around to keep several places in the valley hopping. Local tobacconists, like Baker Street Tobacco in Napa, have enjoyed a steady clientele, and Showley's dinners are always well attended, yet the general attitude is reserved. However, the strong contingent of cigar lovers in the wine country proves that where there is good taste, you'll likely find good cigars.

Anthony Dias Blue is the wine and spirits editor for Bon Appetit and a frequent contributor to Wine Spectator.
