Any winemaker will tell you that wine is made in the vineyard. But the role of winemaker can never be underestimated. Focus, experience, talent are just some of the major ingredients in making great wine. Jeff Cole, Winemaker at Sullivan Rutherford Estate in Napa Valley is our guest today and I had interviewed Jeff by phone back in June of 2020 (Podcast 387). At that time all of our interviews were by phone due to Covid. This time, we meet at the Estate and talk wine face to face, while the Napa winter drops precious rain from a beautiful rainbow.
