This interview is with Darcey and Rick Small of Woodward Canyon Winery. In this interview, the couple discuss their self-taught approach, the cooperation among wineries in Walla Walla, and the growing problem of limited water rights in Washington.  The Smalls also talk about how they taught themselves winemaking through observation, reading, and experience rather than learning through classical training. They also detail their dedication to sustainable agriculture and how the limited water rights in Washington may affect the expansion of the wine industry there.

This interview was conducted by Rachael Woody and Melissa Salrin on July 14, 2014
