The son of comedian and presidential candidate Pat Paulsen relaunches wine label in Oakland
Comedian and presidential candidate Pat Paulsen was one of the first celebrities to launch a winery back in 1976. Due to economic hardship, Pat Paulsen Vineyards closed its Sonoma doors in 1990. Now, 23 years later, Paulsen's son, Monty, a UC-Davis trained winemaker, has relaunched the label in a live-work space in West Oakland's The Bottoms.
