Carneros is an area of Napa Valley that has it’s very own hypnotic attraction. Winemakers that make wine in Carneros not only fall in love with the AVA, but also find it’s appeal incredibly peaceful. Winemaker Chris Kajani is a native of Napa and is well aware of the magic of Carneros. We met up with Chris on a recent visit to Napa Valley and talked at length about the mystical place that is Carneros.

Life Between the Vines is now, thirteen years old. We began production in 2008 and 1200 interviews later, I look back at our history with a huge smile. The last few weeks we’ve been running Select Winemaker stories from past programs and our listeners have let us know they enjoyed the format. This program is even more special as the opening track features Volker Eisele of Volker Eisele Family Estate in the Chiles Valley AVA of Napa Valley. It was a great honor to interview Volker back in October of 2011. He passed in 2015 and I remember what a special day it was recording him. Please, enjoy.
