My guest today, Julie Johnson, is not only a prime example of someone who is truly living their passion, but also someone who is creating an amazing product! Owner and winemaker at Tres Sabores Winery in Rutherford, CA, Julie Johnson is making an impact on the wine world through her love of agriculture and emphasis on the three “sabores” (Spanish for “flavors”) that blend together for an amazing glass of wine!

Listen in as Julie shares which globally renowned winery she helped found & how her venture into the viticulture world was a mix of serendipitous elements, or in her words, “a little bit of kismet and a lot of enthusiasm”.
Julie also shares what prompted her to open Tres Sabores, and what her favorite part of being a winemaker is. You’ll hear just how unique Tres Sabores is & how the winery is celebrating the history & glory of Napa Valley’s viticulture.
