There’s a great story behind every California Living® TV episode. This is PlumpJack Winery’s story…

California Living® with host Aprilanne Hurley was a new “California lifestyle” TV show at the time we filmed on location at PlumpJack Winery in Napa Valley, California.

We appreciated PlumpJack Group invitation to go behind the scenes and into their world of wine. We also knew our viewers would really enjoy an inside look at the PlumpJack wine tasting experience, after all…

Fast forward to 2015.  As CALIFORNIA LIIVNG® celebrates 10 years on broadcast television, we extend a note of appreciation to PlumpJack Group for giving us the opportunity to “tell their story.”   The content featured in our PlumpJack Winery TV special remains as entertaining and evergreen as the day we filmed it.

Yes, PlumpJack Winemaker Tony Biagi has moved on.  Yet, if we’ve learned anything over the last 10 years – it’s that “things change.”

Today, winemaker Aaron Miller and his team continue on to earn PlumpJack wine high critical acclaim.

For the PlumpJack Group, “change” has been a good thing.  In addition to managing growth in their “lifestyle” focused restaurant and resort property offerings, PlumpJack Group’s portfolio now includes 2 additional Napa Valley wineries:
