tyler Henley - Boxwood estate
This is the first episode of Inside Winemaking to leave the West Coast and learn about winemaking in Virginia. Tyler Henley is the winemaker for Boxwood Estate and has been making wine in Virginia for four years, after an extensive background working at wineries in California and Chile. Tyler and I worked together at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars ten years ago. Thankfully we've kept in touch and were able to connect over Skype to record this episode. Beyond Tyler's background we cover what makes viticulture unique and the challenges of growing grapes in Virginia. Winemakers working in marginal climates have to get creative, are master problem-solvers, and their experiences can be of great value when shared.
The audio in this episode is a bit rough, and I appreciate your patience during this discussion that was recorded over Skype.
For those of you that are new to Inside Winemaking, having learned of it from Eric Asimov's mention in his NYTimes article, welcome. Most podcasts are recorded in person, but I will record remote episodes from time to time when the opportunity presents.
