Winemaker Spotlights: Covert Estate and Trefethen Family Vineyards

Interviewing and writing about winemakers is one of my all-time favorite activities. I love how vintners are not just any one thing—they're artists, scientists, farmers, and business people. Some are quiet, some are gregarious, but all are passionate about liaising between vine and bottle with intention and grace. Plus, while the wines are delicious, I find the stories behind the wines are just as fascinating and often, unexpected. 

This year, as I have for the last two, I had the opportunity to feature two winemaking families for Gentry Magazine's annual wine issue. In a move motivated largely by excitement about these families, and a teeny bit of self-promotion, I want to direct you to the online edition of the articles in this month's Gentry Magazine.
