Winemakers love talking about dirt, especially Michael Larner of Larner Vineyards and Winery, who can break down the minerals and soil types in his vineyard by strata and epoch. While it could be easy to feel intimidated discussing viticulture and geology with someone whose friends like to call “The Professor,” sitting and sipping with Michael Larner is rather entertaining and engaging, so much so that you can feel his warm demeanor. In Episode 5 of “Two Glasses In,” dive into Michael’s journey, the challenges of his family business and where he’s at now, which amounts to an enthralling, true American success story in Santa Barbara wine country.
Follow along and drink what we’re drinking. Episode 5 of “Two Glasses In” features Larner’s 2016 Estate Syrah and 2017 Elemental Estate GSM Blend.
"Two Glasses In" is available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
