Jim Day started his wine journey with a single barrel in his garage. Now he’s launching his own label, and he hasn’t grown much in scale. He’s got a few barrels at several area wineries, and he punches his caps and tops his barrels during his lunch break at his regular gig.

Jim’s no less passionate than the winemakers we’ve interviewed at state-of-the-art facilities producing tens of thousands of cases per year. But he’s certainly taking a different approach to the professional winemaker’s calling.
