For the last year or so, I’ve been amassing a nice little collection of winemaker interviews.
Not here on 1WD, mind you, but for one of my gigs with the excellent people at the Wine4.me app team.
Long-time 1WD readers may recognize Wine4.me as the mobile app incarnation of Vinesleuth, with company whom I spent many an excellent day (and many a fun-filled evening) as one of the experts on their wine tasting panels (the subject of which sparked an interesting debate regarding the repeatability, consistency, and statistical accuracy of wine tasting in general here on these virtual pages).
The winemaker interviews have been part of a series on the Wine4.me blog, in which we try to get inside the head of some of the personalities behind the wines featured in the app’s extensive database. To date, I’ve gotten to run questions by such notable characters as Kim Crawford‘s Anthony Walkenhorst, Ravenswood‘s Joel Peterson, Catena Zapata‘s indefatigable Laura Catena, and fifth generation wine guy (and fellow musician) Karl Wente.
Not a bad lineup!
So consider this a long, long (long!) overdue introduction to that growing body of work.
