Guy Fieri is trying his hand at a new hustle: Vinification. The loud-haired food guru recently bought a five-acre vineyard full of pinot noir grapes in the Russian River Valley, then upped the ante by putting in an application to "open a wine tasting room."
In an interview with the Press Democrat, Fieri explained his obsession with wine:
"Ever since I moved to Sonoma County and saw all this incredible environment of wine, from the agricultural side of it to the business side of it, to the community involvement side of it ... I've just been in awe," Fieri explained to Press Democrat. "So my wife and I were talking about it, and saying, â€˜Can we do that some day?'"
Aside from the wine tasting room, he wants to create a place to teach kids about cooking and to throw parties at. So, he submitted an application to throw 14 events a year at the new place. Fieri hasn't said when it's going to open, but says it will be named "Hunt and Ryde" after his sons, Hunter and Ryder.
