HighCast 057 – Mark Bourne

Mark is owner and vigneron at Cuttaway Hill Wines.

Mark is a really happy guy. Why wouldn’t you be when you get to spend your days in the fields cultivating and creating a product that people love? Not to mention that he also gets to sip wine most days..!

Mark is more than a wine maker, he’s a amateur historian, part time geologist and meteorologist, he has to be when he’s meeting people from all over the globe and explaining the providence and characteristics of his wine. He’s also a passionate advocate for local produce and talks as enthusiastically about other local products as he does his own.

I like drinking wine, perhaps a little to much, but I’ve never really appreciated the nuance and artisan nature of it’s production. Mark embodies that essence in a way, he’s more than a wine maker, he’s on a journey to learn and to enjoy his life. I feel he’s doing a great job!

Thanks Mark!
