When Nicky Hahn bought Smith & Hook Vineyard in Monterey County almost 40 years ago, the regions reputation for wine was in the dregs. He quickly aimed to reset that narrative. For his countless contributions to Monterey and, by extension, the industry as a whole, Wine Enthusiast has named Nicky Hahn as its 2017 American Wine Pioneer.

Here Nicky explains what this means to him and a bit about the journey that got him here.
