ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
“I feel as if I've lived three entirely different adult lives: one in academics, one in advertising and now one in wine. The first two were quite successful in their own ways and I'm deeply grateful for them both. But they say the third time's a charm and I wholeheartedly agree!
Of course, this work is hard, sometimes stressful, and often less glamorous than one might imagine… but it's also fascinating, exhilarating, inspiring and rewarding like nothing else I've ever done. The way I see it, making wine, discovering new art and sharing them both with others is about as good as it gets. To our many customers who make this possible, I offer my most sincere thanks. I raise my glass to each and every one of you!” *
