Hank Beckmeyer is one of the winemakers that is helping make the Sierra Foothills an up-and-coming wine region.  He’s caught the attention of some well-known wine writers, including Alice Feiring who declared that Hank is among the “finest of the new generation of US winemakers who are forging forward with bravery,  talent and thoughtfulness.”  He’s also a darn nice guy.
