The Bon Bon Bon Vie! Acclaimed Journalist and Author, Jon Bonne is Living His Best Life.

Season 3, Ep. 51

MJ’s Guest today is one of the most influential and widely-read American voices on wine and food and Managing Editor of RESY, acclaimed journalist and author, Jon Bonne. In Jon’s 20 + years as a journalist he has been a Senior Contributing Editor for PUNCH. He spent nearly a decade as the Wine Editor and Chief Wine Critic of The San Francisco Chronicle, where he co-edited its Food & Wine section, and won two James Beard awards and numerous other accolades.He is also author of The New California Wine and The New Wine Rules, and is currently finishing his next book, The New French Wine


In this episode MJ and Jon discuss his early beginnings in media at MSNBC where he first pitched the idea of doing a wine column. From that momentum he eventually landed in California, as wine critic at the SF Chronicle which jokingly Jon calls “not awkward” as big California wines had not “been his thing”. MJ and he discuss his journey of discovering California wines “that spoke to him”, writing now iconic books, the love story of meeting his wife and his deep appreciations of Burgundy, the wine and the region. The opinions are strong and the wines are delicious! Cheers!
