Major Crush S2/Ep 13: The Jesse Katz Interview

It was such a huge pleasure to be able to spend time with one of the most notable young winemakers Meredith & Lou have ever interviewed: Jesse Katz. His resume reads like someone who should be much older than 36, and his wines are so spectacular that it’s only reasonable to assume this man is truly gifted. In this interview, Meredith and Lou are two of the first people to do a tasting with Jesse in his brand new tasting facility which is perfectly situated in a spot where three famed Sonoma County AVAs come together: Russian River, Dry Creek & Chalk Hill. Jesse’s honest passion for Sonoma County comes through in this interview, and his wines were more than just a little “crush-worthy!” 
LISTENER NOTE: The new Aperture Tasting Room will be open as soon as it’s safe for people to come back to the Wine Country, so please check out the website ( for updates and to purchase wines from their collection.
