TAPAS members Kelly and Todd Bostock of Dos Cabezas WineWorks are featured in "Winemakers to Watch 2015: Meet our 10 rising-star vintners," an article by the San Francisco Chronicle's Jon Bonné. Their fellow Arizona winemakers Sand-Reckoner Vineyards and Caduceus Cellars are also mentioned, along with Mike Roth, former winemaker at Martian Ranch & Vineyard in Los Alamos, CA. This is the first year that any non-California winemakers have been included in this Top 10 list. Congratulations Todd & Kelly!
