Welcome to Episode 918 Cynthia Chaplin interviews Jason Mikami, in this installment of Voices, on the Italian Wine Podcast.
More about today’s guest:
In 1896, Jason’s grandfather journeyed to California, settling in Lodi where he developed a passion for grape growing. Now in their second century and 3rd generation of farming, Mikami Vineyards produces single vineyard, handcrafted wines from the premier blocks of their family vineyard estate. Their wines are a tribute to their father who for over 40 years managed their 15-acre vineyard by hand, but never saw the release of these wines. They are committed to sustainable farming practices and producing a refined, balanced style of wine.
