Page 14. Wednesday, November,12, 1980 Bill Bonetti of Souverain wins winemaker of the year award At the 34th Annual Banquet of the Sonoma County Winegrowers Assoclaton, an association of 33 Sonoma County Wineries, Bill Bonetti of Souverain Cellars was chosen as their winemaker of the year. This coveted honor has been awarded to a Sonoma winemaker for over 20 years, and has in the last decade or so become a very prestigious award. When Souverain Cellars of Alexander Valley was first planned in 1972, it was realized that ff it were t become  a succeasul producer of top-quality wines, il would be necessary to find one of the best winemakers in the North Coast counties area -- someone not only with great skill and lalent, but also a man who had already had considerable experience in directing a premium wine making operation. Bill Bonetti was chosen as the winemaker best qualified to carry out the Souverain aim of making the finest wines in the North Coast. Born in Clifton, New Jersey, BonetU left the U.S. at the age of two for Coneglian Italy, where be grew up and went to school. The Bonetti family just happened to live across the street from one of the foremost European wine schools, so that it is not unexpected that Bill's early interests were directed towards winemaking as a career. Bonetti came to Sauverain after many years of experience learning his trade with Gallo, Crnsta Blanca and Charles Krog wineries. The ensuing years have proven the wisdom of his decisions, as Souverain wines have received more and more honors at wine judging events and the general public has come to equate the Bonetti made Souverain wines with consistent top quality. Souverain Cellars is a limited partnership of over 250 North Coast grape growers. The Winery is located 20 miles north of Santa Rosa, west of the Independence Lane exit off of Highway I01. i!

Reagan Transition Team Continued from page I He said Richard Allen, his controversial foreign policy aide, will be a senior advisor to the new team. Reagan told the news conference that he has already started "pillowing together an administration, and will begin immediately on the job of translating capaign promises into reality," He also said be is"appreciative that President Carter has moved swiftly to make the transition both easy and effective." In his news conference the Pres/dent-elect said his first priority will be the economy and one of the things he wants to do is institute a hiring freeze on federal employees. The implicatins f the huge Ronald Reagan Republican victory, will be unfolding over a long period of time, but some basic points were clear even as the final returns were being counted last week. As one columnist put it, "What defeated Jimmy Carter and the Democrats was the failure to control inflation and to demonstrate an ability to, protect American lives and interests abroad. Leading national pollsters are still in deep disagreement as to why their surveys gave no clear advance indication of the lopsided Ronald Reagan victory. President Carter decided to concede the election before the polls closed on the West Coast becanse it was clear Renaid Reagan had won the election. Jody Powell, Press Secretary, said that the decision of Carter to concede did not hurt other Democrats, despite, complaints from candidates and party leaders in western states. "It seemed to us that it was clear to everybody who was.  even remotely interested in who won that election, - and t wasn't us," Powell said. "That having been clear for several house, it just seemed that the appropriate and the decent thing to do was to go ahead and make that statement rather than ato tempting to impose some artificial and meaningless delay on it." Carter's concession more than an hour before the polls closed on the West Coast has been criticized by a number of Democrats. Powell said the president and his staff realized the polls dosed on the West Coast has been criUcized by a number of Democrats. Poweli said the president and his staff realized the polls were still open on the West Coast but decided" Carter should go ahead with his concession because the outcome was known and the concession would not affect the outcome of any race in California, Oregon or Washington.
