The Inside Winemaking Podcast with Jim Duane

In the basement of the world's cutest micro-winery, I met with Mark Porembsky to talk about his work there making not only the wine for Anomaly Vineyards, but also for his own brand, Zeitgeist Cellars.  

Our conversation covers:

  • Mark's favorite winemaking tool
  • The mentors that Mark  had when learning to make wine
  • How Mark and his wife, also a winemaker, harness "creative conflict" in their blending process
  • How subtlety and complexity have evolved to be hallmarks of the Zeitgeist wines
  • The origins of Anomaly Vineyards
  • How Mark uses analytical tools such as tannin assays to inform his winemaking
