SF Examiner at Artisano

The SF Examiner features Foursight in an article about Artisano, a local food and wine event. The full story can be found here.

"...Bill and Nancy Charles of Foursight Wines described how this year’s harvest was extremely challenging due to the changing weather conditions, but they were all smiles at Artisano as they poured their limited production, hand crafted Pinot Noir, silky smooth and rich with ripened fruit on the palate. Foursight Wines is a family operation run by Bill, Nancy, their daughter Kristy and son-in-law Joe Webb. A unique feature of the area around their winery is the continued use of an esoteric language called Boontling. Information about its origin is sparse, but the English-based language may have been made up by local people in the 1800s, intermingling words from their native languages of Scottish, Gaelic Irish, Spanish and even some Pomo words from the local Native American tribe. Kristy is a fourth generation native of Mendocino County and the winery is located on the land of their old redwood “airtight” (sawmill in Boontling) at the Charles Lumber Company. Bill entertained us with detailed Boontling phrases, which he learned as a child going to school in Boonville. ..."
