The wild plum is one of nature's rarest and most unique fruits. It grows at the edges of Oregon, California and Nevada's northern high desert at altitudes between 4000 and 7000 feet. Here it tolerates great extremes of heat, cold, alkaline soils, and drought. In its native state, the wild plum grows on a large bush five to six feet tall. The fruit is similar to a cherry in size and has a distinctive tart flavor. The Indian tribes of this area gathered the ripe fruit and dried it for winter to garnish their wild fowl and game. In 1832, Hudson Bay trappers on their southwest expedition from Canada to California arrived in this area starved and weary. They killed their first deer in many months and also discovered this delicious fruit they named the Wild Plum. The wild plum was rediscovered in 1843 by Oregon Trail pioneer, Captain Lassen, on his route to California. He transplanted them in the Sacramento Valley, but due to climate and soil differences, they would not reproduce.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
