Larry Stone, who stepped away from the Wine Spectator Grand Award-winning Rubicon restaurant when Francis Ford Coppola made him managing director of Rubicon Estate in 2006, starts a new job next week. He is to be the general manager of Evening Land, which makes wines from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, California’s Sonoma Coast and Santa Rita Hills and, more recently, Burgundy.
Looks like a good fit, as lots of sommeliers have been involved with Evening Land, which earned a spot on the Wine Spectator Top 100 last year with a wine from its first vintage in Oregon, 2007.
