Meet the Winemaker (Episode 40): Judy Leissner, Grace Vineyard

At 24 years old, Grace Vineyard CEO and President Judy Leissner, left her career in finance to take over the reins at Grace, in Shanxi province in China, which she tells Debra is ideal, as she had no idea how big a job she was getting into! She recounts the journey from their very average first vintage in 2001 to the quality wine they are producing today. They taste a Muscat that Grace Vineyards partnered with Torres to produce, an interesting experience where European winemakers and Chinese farmers had difference of opinion vineyard practises, as well as the resulting taste of the wine.
