There's nothing better than curling up on a chilly Winter night with Steve and the puppies, a good movie (like Bohemian Rhapsody - AMAZING!) and a nice bottle of red wine. And if you're also a fan of indulging in delicious, full-bodied red wines this time of year, you won't want to miss my timely podcast interview with Christian Palmaz, CEO of Palmaz Vineyards, which is home to some of my favorite Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons.
Born in San Antonio, Texas to Argentine parents, Christian's family's has had a fascinating journey in the wine world, which began with his father's groundbreaking invention of the Palmaz coronary heart stent in the 1990's. Since then, two generations of the Palmaz family have sought to bring this familial spirit of innovation and invention to the ancient art of making wine. Their background in the sciences, passion for living life to the fullest and years of backbreaking work have resulted in a unique winery situated inside an 18-story cave that combines cutting-edge technology with a respect for winemaking tradition.
