What are Greg Majors’ favorite wine regions?
Domestically, it’s great for me to get in the car and drive out east to Long Island to the vineyards. Especially in the wintertime, when everything’s dormant and it just has that panoramic landscape. I love just driving around that area of Long Island.
On the West Coast, it’s the Santa Cruz Mountains. You won’t find a lot of wine grown in the Santa Cruz Mountains; it’s a part of California that overlooks the southern part of the Bay Area. It just has this advantage of extreme sunlight, but without a lot of heat; so you get really good-quality grapes. For me, it’s my preferred California or domestic area.
For Europe, having family from the Campania area of Italy, just outside of Naples, [there are] great aesthetically beautiful vineyards, and wines for that matter.
