“To me, the winemaker’s story embodies the true “hero’s journey. It starts with a ‘leap of faith,’ followed by a journey wrought with obstacles, wise mentors, and an inevitable battle – usually in a cave – culminating in the hero’s victory, and reward – in this case, wine.

As a writer, it’s a compelling tale centered around courage, creativity, and community. In the end, don’t we all thirst for such stories?” – L.M. Archer
