The "Hoi Poilliux" can taste the American grown pinots from the SLH appellation which came from DRC stock. Then they can thank the man who collected freshly cut trimmings from DRC vineyard while on a bicycle ride thru Burgundy during his summer vacation. The vacation which he cut short and immediately returned to California.
