Inside Winemaking - the art and science of growing grapes and crafting wine

This episode features Natalie Winkler and viticulturist for Salvestrin Winery in the Napa Valley. Our conversation during this podcast was heavy on technical farming. Natalie shared her experience in transitioning vineyards from conventional to organic and biodynamic farming. We discussed cover crops, soil building, carbon sequestration, conservation tillage, and even a little about winemaking.
