"The winemaker at Shallon Winery is Paul van der Veldt. He is also the owner and the host. It is he that most times would greet you, show you the winery, serve you tastes of the current wines, interrogate you as to your occupations, discuss dining at length within a fifty mile radius, and possibly offend you if your questions or comments provoke a curmudgeonly philosophical response.
