The background of a typical winemaker is anything but typical. I’ve always found it interesting to learn about one’s work or education history when finding their way into the wine business. Julie Robertson, Winemaker at Crocker & Starr came from the field of architecture. One passion leads to another passion. It is really all about passion.

Art, Wine and Nature make up the essence of Aperture Cellars, which is found in the lovely town of Healdsburg. Hillary Sjolund is Associate Winemaker at Aperture and she works closely with Winemaker Jesse Katz to produce the very finest wines in Sonoma. I caught up with Hillary in early December of 2022 to learn how the art of photography and design contribute to what it takes to make great wine.

When is comes to growing wine at high altitudes, Mendoza, Argentina is pretty much the place to go. Herve Birnie-Scott is founder of Terrazas de las Andes and has vast experience in high altitude wine. I spoke with Herve by phone at the end of December and I was captivated by his entry into Argentinian wine. Best of all I’ve tasted several of these wines. All I can say is find them as soon as you can.
