This podcast takes us into a slightly different area of the wine business, but still with a focus on family winemaking. Rebecca Sciandri Griffin and Elise Nerlove Rutchick are both part of Save The Family Farms, which is based in Napa Valley. Rebecca is from Sciandri Family Vineyards and Elise, from Elkhorn Peak Cellars. You may remember Rebecca from podcast #170 featuring her late father Ron, released in December of 2015. We met up with Elise and Rebecca at the Sciandri

Vineyards in Coombsville just outside the city of Napa. Winemakers work hard. It’s important to see that few businesses do retail, wholesale, manufacturing, legal, hospitality, compliance as well as working hand in hand with mother nature.

You can also hear Rebecca on our Vino Lingo segment defining the term “ASDIN”
