One of the advantages of visiting small wineries is that you almost always meet someone who has an operating interest in the winery. The woman pouring your wine probably just got done sweeping the floor, dusting the tasting room or stocking the shelves. After you leave, she might arrange for bottles and labels for the next bottling. And she has a story. Ask her how the winery got started or if there is any significance to the winery name or the design of their label. She’ll be happy to tell you and you will walk away with some great wines and some great stories.
