Episode 25 with Blair Gillingham

Blair Gillingham is the winemaker now at Howling Bluff Estate Winery in Naramata but for has been in the wine business since he was a teenager. There aren’t a lot of people in their early 40s who can say that they’ve experience well more than 20 vintages, which he’s done in many countries around the world, which he’ll be talking about. Blair is super down to earth about wine and winemaking. He was a hard-core listener to my old podcast, Wine Country BC back in the day – even remembering things about them that I’d forgotten about. He brought along a couple of tank samples to try as well, which was really cool. Enjoy my chat with Howling Bluff winemaker Blair Gillingham. Cheers!
