You could say that winemaker David Baird is living the dream at Folktale Winery & Vineyards in California’s Carmel Valley. They say every bottle has a story to tell, and behind the label, David coaxes those stories out of Folktale’s estate vineyards.
If you don’t know the Folktale wine or haven’t visited the winery, you are in for a treat. Folktale is a place you need to know about, a destination whenever you are in Carmel, Big Sur or Monterey. David brings his own touch to the wine program here, and has some exciting projects, including a wine aged under the waves of Monterey Bay.
David’s also a good sport, as he met us, the Marys, at the winery the morning after returning from a seven day trek through Yosemite Valley. So tune in find to out about the tales the wines of Folktale have to tell as they speak through David’s competent and creative winemaking hands.
