Winemaker Billy Smith
An epiphany- the sudden realization or comprehension of the larger essence or meaning of something. A new foundational frame of reference.
This is how I respond when asked the question, “How did you get started making wine”?
Morphing from vision to passion, I planted over 400 cold climate Marquette California grape vines in my front yard. With the support of family and friends I was soon crushing and fermenting locally grown cold climate grapes, and the best Northern California grapes I could buy!
Experimenting, but following the advice of the best wine makers, TIME has become a guiding force and mantra for my life of making quality red wines.
