Winemaking is the new rock ‘n’ roll. Or in Charles Smith’s case it is the new Danish thrash metal. Charles spent a decade in Europe managing various bands you have never heard of (unless you misspent your youth in disused warehouses near the Copenhagen ring road) before seeing the light and heading to Washington State to plant vines.
