TASTE News Service, June 24, 2016 - Zach Cartwright’s great grandfather was a winemaker on the Ohkay Owingeh (San Juan) Native American reservation in New Mexico. 

Zach never met his grandfather, but as the first person in his family to attend college, he was inspired by him. He earned a biochemistry degree at New Mexico State University, with a focus on wine.

“My passion for wine only grew after I got an internship at Rio Grande Winery in Las Cruces, New Mexico,” said Zach. “Gordon Steel, the winery owner, was a graduate of the wine program at Washington State University and insisted I look for graduate school opportunities at WSU.”

American children don’t grow up with wine as an inherent part of meals as Italian children do. We drink milk, and while wine might be at our tables, lumped in with beer or liquor, we inherit almost a fear of it. It is illegal after all; we might be arrested if caught drinking it under twenty-one, our parents might remind us. Not to mention that it tastes horrible.

Harvest '90

They start to gather in the darkness. It’s still a little chilly and most are wearing light jackets or wool plaid overshirts. Later they will peel these off and work in tee-shirts.
