NY Times, "The Oregon Trail" by Eric Asimov
"During my visit, I tried dolcettos and nebbiolos, assyrtikos and aligotés, gewürztraminers and others from labels like Holden Wine Company, Franchere Wine Company, Smockshop Band and Hiyu Wine Farm. Many were terrific. Seek them out if you are in the mood to sample some surprising, provocative wines."

"I tasted three wines from Mike, two  pinot noirs and one syrah, and was very impressed with what I tasted, particularly given that these are only from the second vintage that he has produced... Franchere Wines is off to an excellent start and is a name to watch in the coming years."
