Back in June of 2019 (Podcast #328) we interviewed Winemaker Brian Brakesman of Red Thread Wines on Howell Mountain. For this podcast we catch up with his sister Heather Griffin of Summit Lake Vineyards, the winery started by their dad way back in 1971. Family wineries are special and literally the root of the industry. There is also something even more special about those smaller wineries. Likely, tender loving care.

You can also hear Heather on our Vino Lingo segment defining the term “Family Owned and Operated Winery”
