Back in 2009, we spent some time talking to a young man from California who was headed to Burgundy to make wine …or more properly stated, to make Burgundy! Ray Walker has now been making wines in Nuits-Saint-Georges for the last seven vintages under his label, Maison Ilan. So, we thought we’d check in with Ray to have him reflect back on the wide ranging experiences he’s encountered, both the ups and the downs of making wine in France, and apparently more formidable, selling and delivering that wine to consumers in many countries, including the U.S.
Join us as we talk with Ray about Maison Ilan, the pitfalls he’s experienced, and how he views the future of his label.
