Arcadian Winery is built on the principle of combining the best of old world wine making techniques while taking advantage of state of the art science to make world class wine. Joe Davis, a chemist by trade, still uses the time honored method of “pigeage à pied” (treading grapes by foot). Learn about this and his use of the controversial wine making technique “whole cluster fermentation”, on today’s show.
