Bottle of Wine
Erin & Bill high above the Salinas Valley at the Hahn Winery in Monterey County.

After meeting each other while working at Busch Gardens in Van Nuys, California, and growing to enjoy all types of beer, Bill Hodge & Erin O’Neill finally found wine they not only could drink, but enjoy, when they tasted a bottle of Michaelangelo’s Chianti at a restaurant. Over time they discovered the joys of California wine, upon which these articles are focused. As they share with you, please share your wine adventures with them as they explore all of the California Bottles of Wine. You may contact them at 714-612-0994 or send an email via the form below.

Bill Hodge & Erin O’Neill enjoy a good bottle of wine, visiting and enjoying California Wineries from Lake County to Orange County, From Paso Robles’ Gold Coast to Gold Country and Lodi to Temecula.
