We return from a three week vacation, refreshed and ready for the next round of winemaker interviews.  A reminder to our listeners to please send us a note with your opinions, critiques, thoughts and suggestions in regard to our program. We want to hear from you! Write to: ray@lifebetweenthevines.com.

Labor is not only a big issue with the wine business but also in the country and world in general. Where is your future labor force coming from? How do you hire quality workers? Where will they live? For this program we again visit this concern and talk with five winemakers from Napa Valley and the Willamette Valley and get their thoughts on the problem. We welcome your comments on this issue as well!

Featured winemakers:

1-Chris Kenefick of Kenefick Ranch, Calistoga, Napa Valley

2-David Nemarnick of Alloro Vineyard, Willamette Valley, Oregon

3-Julie Johnson of Tres Sabores, Napa Valley

4-Steven Rogstad of Cuvaison Winery, Carneros, Napa Valley

5-Alex Sokol-Blosser of Sokol-Blosser Winery, Willamette Valley, Oregon
