Richard Kasmier, aka “Kaz”, has been making wine since 1985. Evolving from hobby to vocation in fewer than ten years, his organic wine production has earned him recognition and acclaim within the Sonoma Valley and beyond. A fan of Big Red Wines, Kaz likes to play with funky new blends using varietals like Mourvedre, Carignane, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Barbera, and others. Living by the motto “there’s no harm in experimenting”, Kaz enjoys pushing the envelope in the world of wine, and now, the world of radio.
Randy Hall, a recent transplant from Silicon Valley, brings his love of wine and his love of high-technology and mashes them together in order to make his life complete. He lives on a ranch in the hills north of Glen Ellen, California that grows grapes, sheep, goats and chickens. Don’t get him started on the goats. He has been dying to podcast about wine, and Wine Biz Radio (being derived from a community radio show) provides that first opportunity.
