Longevity Wines’ Phil Long, Livermore Valley Ep. 19

It’s all about wine with heart on this episode of Sip Sip Hooray! We welcome Phil Long, winemaker and co-founder, with his late wife Debra, of Longevity Wines in California’s Livermore Valley, east of San Francisco and San Jose. Phil’s a busy man! He just inked a national wine distribution deal — which is a BIG deal — and he recently took on the role of president of the Association of African American Vintners.

Get to know the winemaker for whom hearts hold a special place in his heart, and literally wears his heart on his sleeve, who is working to address diversity and opportunity in the wine world and has a survivor story you won’t forget.
