From 13,000 feet in a air, Joe Wagner looks out of a franchised jet and over a Pacific Coast. En track from Napa to Salinas, a winemaker points to any landmark next with a laxity of a commuter on his float to work: There’s San Pablo Bay, a Golden Gate Bridge, a San Andreas Fault. Asked how mostly he travels by jet, Wagner laughs. He’s in a atmosphere a lot these days, inspecting vineyards sprawled from Oregon to Santa Barbara, many some-more than an hour divided from a blurb airport. For Wagner, time is precious.
