    About Markus...
    From the Markus Wine Co website:
    Founded in 2014, Markus Wine Co. began as a subventure of Lodi’s first boutique winery, Borra Vineyards. Winemaker Markus Niggli selects from wisely-planted ancient vines and newly-planted unusual offerings throughout the Lodi region to craft small-production bottlings that focus on fruit and age.

    For what’s on the bottles, Markus explains, “People, like wine, are shaped by unique places,” which is why each label brings together a location from Markus’s past with the current grape source. Creative expressions of the locations are realized through a long-term collaboration with label designer Michael Leonard and his students at the University of the Pacific in Stockton.

MNH_3 ,

Very enjoyable listen!

Had a blast listening to the first episode. These two couples seem like down to earth/goofy friends. It’s obvious they like to enjoy a nice drink here and there but their backgrounds as wine makes and grape growers give you a unique perspective on the alcohol industry. Definitely worth a listen!
