For 20 years, I have been growing grapes, making wine, launching my client’s wine brands, and hopefully entertaining people with candid anecdotes from the wine industry. In this weekly blog, expect to see reports from field, crush pad video, commentary on misconceptions, and eventually (when I get brave enough to stick my neck out!) leaning towards politically incorrect material about the wine business. I hope to post once per week, typically on Sunday mornings. Comments always welcome. Outrageous entertaining replies encouraged.

Growing and harvesting the fruit is half the battle. Next up is the winemaking. Every load of fruit is very carefully weighed, by law, so that each grower’s property can be carefully tracked all the way into bottle; every drop.
