Local ingredients and International wines

calalilly | Aug 13, 2012 03:03 PM

I have a random question that I've been thinking about and hoping CHers can answer. Recently I've been to a lot of restaurants in the Bay Area that focus on sourcing ingredients locally and leaving as little carbon footprint as possible (ie Oliveto). What I don't understand is that many of these restaurants carry a wide selection of European and other International wines vs. California wines. Does wine not count in the whole sourcing of local products? Just curious. Thanks.
