Get To Know... Your Vintner

You know their wines, but do you know the people who made them? The winemakers, the small business owners, the viticulturists, the marketers; all have important roles to play in getting your favourite bottle of wine to your door or local wine shop. At the larger firms, each role may be supported by a dedicated department, but as often as not at the smaller shops, one or two people perform all of the keys roles themselves.

It takes a special kind of business and crafts person to bet on Mother Nature providing the essential elements needed to produce one's product every year. This line of work tends to attract the more eclectic characters among us; storytellers, risk takers and impassioned farmers. We like to Get To Know... these folks to enhance the overall experience of appreciating their wines and we hope you'll be interested as well. Each interviewee answered a series of questions that gives insight into how they became involved with winemaking and their experiences in the industry.
