Interview With Howard Bursen of Sharpe Hill Vineyards (CT) (Video Interview)
Howard Bursen is the winemaker at Sharpe Hill Vineyards in Connecticut. He is the dean of Connecticut winemaker, and an old time Finger Lakes wine mafia graduate. He has been making fantastic wines in Connecticut for a long time. Recently, I just tried his new reserve chardonnay Cuvee Ammi Phililips at EWE 2014. It was spectacular. I will be doing a separate review of the wine later.
Here's Howard talking about what's important to him right now.
