While it's easy to think of Nothern California when talking about wine, the process of winemaking was brought to Southern California from France in 1831 by a man named Jean Louis Vignes

On this episode of Inside the Issues we take a look at the history of wine in the Southland. We talk to Matthew Kaner, Co-Founder and Wine Director, Bar Covell, Augustine Wine Bar, Solovin Wine Club and Will Travel For Wine Consulting, Chris Riboli, Business Development Manager of San Antonio Winery in Los Angeles, and Dorian Linkogle, co-owner of Briar Rose Winery in Temecula.
