Andis Wines head winemaker, Mark McKenna, stopped by (or, really, I stopped by) for Episode 113.
Mark McKenna and I chat about becoming a “distinguished wine professional”; why the owners of Andis Wines chose Amador over Napa to start their winery and how Mark came to be their wine maker; the connection between Prohibition and Amador County; why it took him 20 years to make the perfect wine; and what kept him going when his other friends were graduating from med school and he was still power-washing kitchen floor mats.
Thank you for listening, Listeners, and thank you for sharing, Sharers, to my conversation with Mark McKenna of Andis Wines.
