  • Our guest tonight is a graduate of the University of Wyoming who got his start in the Vinquiry wine lab after following his heart to Sonoma County, but not for the love of wine. He has since worked as an Oenologist at Chalk Hill winery, a lab manager for Rodney Strong winemakers where he still is today working as a winemaker responsible for making the single vineyard reserve wines and Davis Bynum wines. Please help us welcome Greg Morthole.
