Jancis interviews Alder

Our series of video interviews continues. Alder Yarrow, our San Francisco-based monthly columnist, discusses his reactions to his first trip to London for 15 years and his first trip ever to Champagne as well as the current state of the California wine scene. Immediately below is a scene from the Vintners' Hall International Wine Trade Dinner to which he refers. The past Master of the Vintners' Company, Rupert Clevely, and current Master (then Upper Warden) Simon Leschallas, greet the Portuguese ambassador João de Vallera before dinner.
