Livermore Valley is a welcoming and yet close community, just to the east of San Francisco. By close I mean every winemaker seems to know each other and they show a great deal of respect for with wines they make by drinking each others wines. Wineries are just about a 15 minute drive apart which is nice for visitors. For this podcast I met up with Mark Clarin, Winemaker at McGrail Vineyards & Winery. Mark is a musician as well as winemaker and very comfortable in each role. That’s because it’s passion, plain and simple.

Listen to Mark on our Vino Lingo segment defining the term “Experienced Oak”.
