Ever meet a staffer who greets you with a smile at a local restaurant or bar and say, “I wish I got to know more about that person.”
It happens to our staff all the time as we come across interesting people with big personalities making a living at cafés, markets, wineries and shops across the North Fork.
We made a list of some of our favorite folks we’ve come across and called them in for a series of brief interviews we’re calling “Fast Chat.” This week is Derek Spencer Gerard of The Winemaker Studio.
The series of one-minute videos is made possible by Sheri Winter Parker.
