Its no secret that labor within the agriculture industry is becoming scarce. The wine business is all about farming and the labor problem is not going away. For this program we talk to five wine professionals who are impacted directly by this concern. We start off with Vineyard Manager Jesus Gonzalez of Number One Vineyard Management in Napa Valley. Next we spoke with Pam Starr, Winemaker and Co-Owner of Crocker & Starr Winery in Napa Valley. Winemaker Elias Fernandez of Shafer Vineyards continues and is followed by Winemaker for Sonoma’s Buena Vista Winery, Brian Maloney. For the final interview we talked with Cellarmaster Ian McClellan of Anaba Winery in Sonoma.
