In this interview, the Crowthers discuss how they both came into the wine industry from their prior careers and how they found their way when it came to growing grapes, including the choice not to use rootstock for their vines. They also explain how they have kept up with trends in the industry, and they comment on the bright future they see not only for Toluca Lane but also for the entire wine industry in Oregon.
