Wow, crazy doings up at the Schramsberg winery in Napa. From the San Francisco Chronicle:
After years of living quietly overseas, middle son John Davies has suddenly re-emerged, claiming that behind the grapes and glamour of Calistoga’s Diamond Mountain lies a tale of betrayal, stock manipulation and dementia. The only element missing is the score for the 1980s night-time soap opera “Falcon Crest.”
Ha, okay, way to date yourself, there, Stacy Finz. But seriously, we love a good scandal, and Finz is right. This one has it all: Family infighting, mental illness, financial finagling and a beautiful, photogenic backdrop. It even has a prodigal son living overseas. We love ex-patriots who come back to claim the family fortune. Definitely worth a read.
