What happens when a top movie exec takes a recommendation from Grape Encounters to heart?
Former Disney Films Executive Gil Gagnon figures he spent 6 years of his life driving to and from the epicenter of California filmmaking. Then one day, an episode of Grape Encounters Radio gave him an idea that eventually led to his departure from the movie business and entré into winemaking. How did his lengthy career in show biz prepare him to make the extraordinary wines that are now getting rave reviews from people like Grape Encounters Host David Wilson? Learn that answer and hear how Gil got into winemaking without planting a vineyard or building a winery. If he can do it, so can you. But it takes patience and a true passion for wine to be successful.
Then, join David and Wine Editor Sara Schneider as they talk about Sara’s ambitious list of wine events and stories coming up in the next few days and weeks. It’s an episode that will likely inspire you like no prior episode of Grape Encounters!
