Chris Carpenter Fanboy?
Dude, this episode was awesome. I started listening while thinning Pinot Noir fruit at work, and just finished at home while making supper. Chris is someone I’d love to meet. Even work for. I was working this spring for my good friend grazing sheep under vines (a few of those vineyards mentioned in this episode) and was having a train wreck of a day with the sheep in Calistoga. A guy walked out of the winery and brought me a bottle of Mt Brave and said, “this is made by our winemaker Chris Carpenter. It looks like you’re having a rough day, and I wanted to give you this to cheer you up.” Not to sound cliche, but that was a pivotal moment in my life, and a second wave hit me when I opened the bottle. Dios mío! Some day I want to make wines of that caliber, although on a smaller scale (and also give them to people having rough days.) That kindness says a lot about the people there. I miss Napa and Sonoma and the wine-sheep-human interaction. Love your show, thanks for sharing!

As a newbie in the wine industry this podcast has been a great insight into how people got to where they are and what they are thinking in their winemaking and related industries. I love all the education and technical details as well as quality of people he gets on to interview. Highly recommended.
