Show Notes:

Lindsey Williams joins the podcast to share the story of her journey from corporate lawyer to winemaker & small business owner. We talk a bit about the concept of an urban winery, the inspirational trip to Tuscany years ago, and the work that went into becoming a professional winemaker, as well as the process of renovating a historic space in Davidson to make a home for Davidson Wine Co.  We are so lucky to have Lindsey on the podcast, and I know you’ll love this episode! Cheers!
