Podcast #134-Valeta Massey of Clos de la Tech

January

18th

2015

It’s all about the slope…in this case, an extreme slope. At Clos de la Tech, it takes a custom made slope management system to farm one vineyard. Considering Valeta Massey went to school to be an engineer, in the end it makes sense she is now in the wine business. Valeta is the winery and vineyard manager at Clos de La Tech and she took the time in December to chat with us on the phone.

January

While the new year always gives us something to look forward to, we were saddened by the passing of a Napa Valley Legend, Volker Eisele. Volker’s focus and contributions to the future of the Valley are exceptional and he will be missed. We consider it an honor to have spent some time at the winery talking with Volker back in 2011…and without a doubt, it’s one we’ll never forget. Special thanks to Alex Eisele for setting the interview up. Our deepest sympathies to the Eisele Family.

This is part one of the interview.

Judd Finklestein of Judds Hill Winery is one of the most visible winemakers in Napa Valley. When he’s not serenading visitors with his ukelele or making wine or making music in general he is telling great stories of Napa Valley….and always with a laugh and a smile.

 

We were very happy to sit down with Judd at the winery and get a small peak into his world…fresh from harvest 2014.

Podcast #131-Duffy Keys of B Cellars

December

11th

2014

Over the past year there have been several new tasting rooms and caves constructed in Napa Valley….but likely none with the service approach of B Cellars. We spoke with B Cellars Co Founder and Principal Duffy Keys just a few short weeks after their new tasting room opened….but to be fair, calling the property a tasting room, falls short of the full picture.
