Scouting the latest must-taste wine projects is a serious Napa Valley sport, and I play the game every time I visit.

I bumped over the rocky soil of a just-planted vineyard in an open ATV with Jasud Estates passionate, bearded owned, Ketan Mody, who didnt seem to notification “were in” getting soaked. Later, when we tasted his first wines in the tiny cabin where he lives, I chose, despite being cold and wet, that this was one of the valleys most fascinating new ventures.
