Most wine lovers are familiar with European varietals such as Cabernet, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Riesling or Pinot Noir, but these wines come from only one of the world’s many grape species. With its climatic diversity, North America is home to a large number of indigenous grape species whose wine-making potential is untapped. On this episode of Smart Companies KC discover why Vox Vineyards celebrates the remarkable diversity and how they are raising awareness of our native grapes. Vox Vineyards sits above the Missouri river valley with a warm climate that is ideal for growing grapes. Owner/founder Jerry Eisterhold, a Missouri farm boy, grew up surrounded by wild grapes in upstream from Hermann, MO.

Join hosts Linda Rez and William Pollard (Wild 4 Washington Wine) for a conversation with the Gilles Nicault, Director of Winemaking for Long Shadows Vintners, a winery that brings together the Rock Stars of winemaking for all the major worldwide wine regions. He is also the winemaker for Long Shadows' acclaimed Chester-Kidder, a Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah blend.
Gilles grew up in southern France and graduated from the University of Avignon with a degree in viticulture and enology. He honed his craft in the fabled hillside vineyards and wineries of Cotes du Rhone, Provence and Champagne. In 1994, already a vintner of rising fame in his homeland, Gilles traveled to Washington State to expand his winemaking.
Impressed by Washington State's vineyards, he stayed in the Columbia Valley, working for Staton Hills and Hogue Cellars before joining Woodward Canyon in 1996, where he stayed until moving to Long Shadows in June 2003. Sharing Woodward Canyon's passion for world-class wines, Gilles soon found Woodward Canyon's founder Rick Small was his ideal mentor and biggest champion. In 1999, Woodward Canyon named Gilles head of enology and production.
Gilles is married to French-born winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla of Forgeron Cellars, an upcoming guest on the Wine Muse show, "The Rise, Fall, and Rise of Chardonnay".
Wine Muse hosts Linda Rez and William Pollard welcome Chris Kajani from Carneros' Bouchaine Vineyards. Chris has recently taken the winemaking reins from legendary vintner Michael Richmond and she stops by to share the story behind their fantastic Riesling, a non-traditional staple in a region dominated by Pinot Noir.

Theopolis Vineyards is located in the Yorkville AVA of California. Owned by Theodora Lee, it is the first vineyard in Northern California owned by an African American woman. We discuss what brought about this passion for winemaking the this trial lawyer. As well as why she selected the specific grapes to grow, including my favorite, Symphony!
Stew Lauterbach, Owner of Lauterbach Cellars and an emergency physician, shares how he and his family run a complete winery from a two-car garage. He breaks down the similarities and differences between winemaking and working in the trauma center. He also tells the story of the first wine he ever made (on his stove as a college student!), which wines are his favorites, barrel tasting, and techniques used to avoid pesticides. All this and more from the Wine Road in Northern Sonoma County, California.
Wine may be bottled poetry and elegant joy, but it stands as one of the toughest business operations to bring to fruition. In celebration of harvest time and New Jersey Wine Week, host Bart Jackson invites Larry Sharrott, president of the Garden State Winegrowers Association and owner of Sharrott Winery to discuss the business side of titilating your palate. Winemaking is regulated heavily by the hand of law, blessed by the god Bacchus, and, often as not, cursed by winds of fate and weather. New Jersey vintners have been steadily advancing the overdue respect for Garden State wines - an amazingly clever tale of branding. Tune in and learn how farmers survive and thrive making the beverage the whole globe enjoys.
They shocked the world by winning the white wine competition for their Chardonnay at the famous "Judgement of Paris" in 1976 and are largely responsible for the wild success of Chardonnay in the States. This summer, the famous Bo Barrett passed the Head Winemaking baton off to Matthew Crafton. The Wine Muse catches up with Matt to find out about his philosophy and see if the pressure of that great win--mythic in nature now--sets an unrealistic standard for him to follow.
He'll also give his opinion on the current state of perception and appreciation of Chardonnay in the world.
