Golden State of Mind
You might say Californians are serious about wine and relaxed about everything else. Well, maybe not everything else: from a thriving technology industry to revolutionary green farming, we work hard and innovate constantly. But when you’re surrounded by natural wonder and constant sunshine, it’s pretty easy to smile. Of course, a glass of California wine always helps.
