What are Jason Wagner's favorite wineries?
I really love Cold Heaven Cellars in Santa Barbara. There’s also a winery up there called Jonata. I go out to Santa Barbara like once a year. I think they’re just doing really cool stuff, very restrained yet distinctly from that place and very American.
There’s a winery in the Languedoc called Mas de Daumas Gassac. They grow some international varietals and some indigenous varietals. The wines that are my favorite kind are very serious but fun simultaneously. You don’t have to sit and ponder them; you can have a good time.
