Vineyards have voices. That’s how our guest today, Ted Glennon of Vocal Vineyards in California’s Santa Cruz Mountains, approaches winemaking.
From DJing to wine, Ted’s career has been both vocal and vinous. Wearing his DJ Soigné hat, he spins up a playlist of cool tunes. Now he’s making cool wines.
Ted combined his music passion with wine, when after working as a sommelier for many prestigious restaurants, he turned his attention to making wine from the Santa Cruz Mountains and Monterey County.
By composing Vocal Vineyards, Ted gives voice to historic vineyards and unsung grape varieties.
