Their vodka has been a huge hit statewide. They also produce a five year single malt and an incredible maple vodka.

    The Inn at Grace Winery

    In this episode we are joined by Andrew Yingst, Cory Ruggiero and Rachel Rougeaux-Testerman of The Inn at Grace Winery.

    The bed and breakfast got it all started in the late 1980's. Grace Le Vines left the property to Christopher Le Vines who established all of the cottages, the winery and vineyard. He changed the name to honor his sister. The grapes were planted in 2007. Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Fran, Chardonnay, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc make up the varietals that were set into the limestone soil. Today the property boasts being a winery, restaurant, boutique hotel, tasting room and event space. The wines that are being produced are delicious and complex. They honor the history and the future of this hidden gem nestled in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

    Drew Mayville - Buffalo Trace/Sazerac

    This episode features Drew Mayville of Buffalo Trace and Sazerac.

    When Drew was originally looking for work he applied to a brewery and a distillery. The distillery turned out to be Seagram's. In hind sight this was his best move. He began in the distillery lab. After many years of working in different areas he was promoted to the Master Blender. We discuss his role at Buffalo Trace and some of the nuances for being a Master Blender. His first priority is being responsible for the consistency and quality of the spirit that goes into every bottle. Drew is always looking to make a better whiskey with Sazerac's Buffalo Trace Distillery. Today he's transitioning into being more of an ambassador and educating people about the products. After the interview, The Master Blender led us through a master class on some of Buffalo Trace's most coveted expressions. Almost 200 plus in attendance at Roger Wilco were grateful for this once in a lifetime experience.

Mount Vernon distillery

I stumbled upon this podcast being a huge fan of the Mount Vernon Distillery. I was very thoroughly entertained with the questions asked by the host. I’m not even that much of a spirits enthusiast but this episode really stood apart with its history lessons as well. Looking forward to listening to some more episodes.

Bsalk ,

Just fun!

More of a wine drinker, then a sprits enthusiast. Enjoying the human stories behind the businesses. Rich can be a little campy, but he is a lot of fun to hang out with.

Boozedancing ,

A Good Old-Fashioned and Boozy Time was had by all!

Rich Baby! Thanks so much for having us on your podcast. You are a SUPERB and gracious host (i.e. you put up with our nonsense and didn't kick us off the air!), and we had a glorious time! Hope to do this again real soon. Cheers! - G=LO
