A Great Wine Collection To Be Dispersed
Wines and Vines reports that Jim McCormick’s remarkable 4,000 piece collection of wine antiques will not, as previously planned, be part of a new Wine Museum planned for Sonoma County. Instead, this great collection will be dispersed.
And this is a tragic shame.
The good folks behind the creation of what is being called “The Wineseum” implied in an interview with Wines & Vines that the collection of antique tools Jean Charles Boisset put on display at his historic Buena Vista Winery in Sonoma does a fine enough job of displaying the type of items McCormick has in his collection. The Wineseum folks said their museum will focus on “primarily educational, and it will still include a wine museum, which will be focused on California wine history, and with historical artifacts but with few wine tools which are well displayed at the Buena Vista wine tool museum.”
