In this interview, Melaney talks about how she got into the wine business, came to Oregon, and got an education that led her to create her label Landmass. She speaks about how she came up with the label, the process of selling wine, and what she looks for when sourcing grapes. Melaney goes on to detail her other business, Public Provisions, and compares and contrasts that to wine. Towards the end of the interview, she reflects on the future for her own business and the Oregon Wine Industry at large.
