One of the coolest aspects of being a boot-strap winemaker is that I get to play all the various winery roles. Honestly, some are more fun than others. I much prefer showing friends/customers around the vineyard or crush pad over say, accounting.

One of the great joys of the wine business is finding a home at a place where the Pinot Noir wines, the people, and the place at which you work come together in great harmony. I have been with MacPhail Family Wines for nearly 3 years and one of the most enjoyable parts of my job is the storytelling about the people and places from which our wines come. We specialize in “wines of place”, wines that truly reflect the place from which they are grown.

In July of 1997 the golfing world lowered their heads at the passing of William Benjamin Hogan at the young age of 84. Argued by many from his era as the games’ greatest player ever, the secret of Hogan’s success died with him. Hogan’s concentration and mastery of the golf swing is perhaps unequaled as evidenced by a few comments from his fellow golf professionals.
The more I think about it, the more I believe that wine, the ultimate social lubricant, can change the world. I believe it so much I created Humanitas Winery for that very purpose. What I mean by this is that the power of wine brings people together in such a positive way that it can galvanize & unify people to make a difference…just because they can.
I don’t know of anything else with quite this power.
