Ep. 60: John Caldwell - Caldwell Vineyard
This episode features John Caldwell, the maverick, the grape-grower, the vine-smuggler, the clonal researcher, the winemaker, and the story-teller. John didn't plan to start his own winery, and neither did he plan to plant grapevines on his property in Coombsville when he first bought it. Today Caldwell Vineyard is a thriving winery and also continues to sell grapes to other wineries. This episode starts a little slow--John didn't even realize that I was recording an audio podcast--and then delves into chaos. It's not for the faint of heart, or the easily offended. I'm sorry? You're welcome? Strap in for this one!
