When your family has been farming in Alexander Valley for over 140 years it puts a heavy responsibility on your shoulders. Then adding a family wine label to the business, you need to be be nothing short of excellent. We met with Munselle Vineyards owner Brett Munselle at the vineyard office back in early December. The drive through Alexander Valley is one of my favorites but the leftover effects of the Kincade fire were evident all along the way. Winemakers are survivors and certainly the weather and luck play a heavy role in the outcome of this event. Take a listen to Brett’s story and see how a grower becomes a winemaker.
