This month, we’re featuring some excellent California wines that are crafted in the Rhone tradition. Bob Lindquist, a native Midwesterner, caught the California wine bug in the seventies and founded Qupé, named after the California poppy, in 1982. Since then his focus has been Rhone varietals and he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rhone Rangers in 2015.
