Fogarty celebrates 30 years of winemaking

Original post made on Apr 7, 2011

When Dr. Thomas Fogarty was looking for land to grow grapes more than three decades ago, there was little property to choose from in and near his hometown, Portola Valley. The acreage he ultimately bought on Skyline, above Portola Valley and near the Skylonda community of Woodside, "was the last of the (available) agricultural lands in town," he explains. ==I Photo by Michelle Le/The Almanac.==

Great article that needed to be told. Dr. Fogarty's commitment to the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA and Michael Martella's superb wine making have been a huge boon to wine lovers and to the area.
