This interview is with Robin and Danuta Pfeiffer of Pfeiffer Winery. In this interview, the couple begin speaking about their life before wine, including how they met, Robin’s time teaching and growing up on the family farm, and Danuta’s time as a broadcast journalist, ski instructor, long distance bicycle rider, and so forth. They go on to talk about Pfeiffer Vineyards, which began after Robin received offers to purchase the land due to its grape growing potential. Later, they go over building their tasting room, growing their brand, and consider how their business has changed over the years.
