-- Tracy Byrnes of the Fox Business Network this is my favorite favorite time of the week it is Wednesday so therefore we get a top wine wine with me.
And today -- is a great story because now I've been on Wall Street put the suit on for how many years now.
We got somebody here that actually to the scene often is doing what he loves Tim her CEO and founding partner up -- wine.
Tim they should be -- that's so you're in the insurance business right.
I still am yes you -- actuary by training yes.
You took the actuary and there's fifty of them.
That is this -- or their work then.
What I took them so you're still practicing insurance does that mean you're still doing action -- -- actuarial stuff.
I think I do on occasion.
Now -- have a company that with a lot of slaughter -- and I was so they're doing the work but yeah I still -- I guess it makes sense that they got a hold onto your day job with this whole wine business -- is what do they say if you want to lose a million.
Go buy a vineyard or something to that -- separate that's true.
Absolutely but -- what did you do it what made you put money in and go and ask his you know what you drive through and that the Napa Valley there's vineyards everywhere.
Well in in in 2005.
I was about ten years into my own consulting practice.
And things have been going pretty well and that.
Ricardo is hankering for us starting a different type of business a second business and I wanted to do something.
A little bit different from mathematics and and and and just numbers on piece -- -- so.
I've always been passionate about -- and enjoyed a drinking it with food and so.
Did a little research and thought that the business prospects look good certainly knew it was going to be a fun business though.
That's that's what the impetus was.
-- -- tell us about the wine selection because you decided only to make pinot noir and Chardonnay how come.
I would say -- that if the short answer is because that's my favorite outline.
But also -- you know cabernet everyone is making cabernet from Napa and you know -- was overplayed.
And -- I live in Southern California and I can get to some really good -- areas.
In the Santa Barbara County so with -- out with a two hour drive to half hour drive I can be and Pino country.
And and that was appealing to me as well but you know also -- Pino is up is on the rise so you know is.
In my opinion is is one of the most food friendly wines.
Most versatile lines.
Can be drank alone could be dragged young you can drag me -- you -- with food.
Wide variety of food especially California you know.
Good to be mean you know -- -- world or even the biggest stuff so you know it it's it's so personal.
Plus our our program is -- -- you know from.
All the -- growing areas on the West Coast from war against the Sonoma.
-- times and even through Monterey county and then down to Santa Barbara County so in each of those areas.
That the wind it's different you know or what else.
So do you want the -- and I -- -- thinking a lot of you know -- I love it I was in -- recently and I think you know I -- you -- is on the rise up there.
You know and I agree that it's also a really easy line to -- -- which is probably why gravitate towards it.
But so what you're seeing is you blend all these grapes from everywhere I mean as far as -- -- Russian river valley and talk about possible doesn't replace you -- saying that this is like an.
And on undiscovered area.
As we do blend.
But we we try to keep our blends -- -- -- so the appellation so.
You wouldn't CS blending necessarily or again with some Sonoma and -- the war Mohammed Ali wishful and several vineyards with enormous valued -- again.
Or several vineyards within Russian river -- to make a Russian river -- But in general we haven't.
Really believe -- across.
Not that that can't be done and there's some terrific examples -- is just not our program.
Tim I got two final questions for you before we lose you -- the other -- that one thing I thought was really interesting is.
Funeral -- top how come.
We -- -- -- because we think that's up -- that's larger aren't.
Especially minds think you don't expect it -- it here.
Or -- it's.
Doesn't allow any are there right aren't so it's it's fresh -- -- I love it because I don't think you know I assume -- I.
If I think about -- every night into my kids away from me so I love that I can distribute not back on -- -- -- so much nicer than having like pumping air out all that nonsense.
But the other interesting thing is that you say you want your winds.
You want a drink I'm not storm.
Treatment and joined today how come like this movement of storing -- it's still errors that just -- old -- you know maybe the old school camera is.
You know I I respect that that people like it's no -- but it.
-- -- right I like to award younger.
I'm I'm with you I would rather -- today he's -- knows what's in -- Mara.
Tim -- -- CE down founding partner of howling winds check out the -- that you can find these winds near you.
They're they're not the right Tim he got fifty -- low yielding vineyards -- -- you know so therefore we.
President -- little higher than people what people I guess the -- -- fifty on the bottom right.
Oh we have aren't spending -- reported a fifty dollars -- we -- you make it -- O line.
And debate thousands at its look so you guys should be -- a five.
Good to add website which is it good and I did exactly that Tim thanks very much -- through all this and that's.
God love technology -- at a minimum you know you not about the line no matter.
Thank you to answer to a right good -- you know let me know anything.
