Episode 20 Alderlea Vineyards

Zac Brown and Julie Powell from Alderlea Vineyard join me on the podcast this week. They are on Vancouver near Duncan and took over Alderlea from founder Roger Dosman in 2017. Since then, they have continued to build Alderlea with the same level of enthusiasm for learning and exploring the region’s potential for making great wines. With guitars in the background and motorcycles in the conversation before we started recording, I stayed focused on the wine as best as I could although it wasn’t easy. Zac and Julie are both very well spoken and clearly love what they do so the conversation rolled easily. I hope you enjoy!
