Helen Turley - 2010

Helen Turley, who has made some of California's greatest wines in her more than three decades in the state's wine industry, is the recipient of Wine Spectator's Distinguished Service Award for 2010. During the 1990s, Turley helped usher in the era of the superconsultant in California, taking startups such as Peter Michael, Colgin and Bryant Family to fame. Now Turley pursues her philosophy of winemaking excellence at her own Marcassin Vineyard, which she runs with husband John Wetlaufer.
