The Wine Makers is a Podcast from Sonoma, CA featuring experts Brian Casey, Sam Coturri, Bart Hansen & host John Myers. Taking the stuffiness out of wine every Friday!
In this episode, the guys sat down with Jillian, owner and winemaker at Onesta and talk about how she gets to “travel up and down the West Coast, finding solutions for other winemaker’s problems” while making beautiful single-vineyard Rhône varieties that are true expressions of the place. Most of it is sold directly to the consumer, sold through the wine club and out of her tasting space at Feast it Forward in Napa. Johnson is launching a new brand, one she says “morphs honesty to guilty pleasure”: Mentida—a Spanish word for “a little lie.” With Mentida, she’ll focus on blends of different vineyards.
