FarmHer host Marji Guyler Alaniz travels to Lower Lake, California to meet a FarmHer who grows high elevation grapes to make superior wine. Tracey Hawkins started out working at a local vineyard, but eventually, she decided to make wine herself, releasing her first vintage in 2004.
“I was a single mom at that time and I wanted a job that allowed me a lot of freedom so I could drop off and pick up my daughter from school. I ended up falling in love with the wine business.” said Tracey.
FarmHer begins the day climbing the mountain to reach the vines. Tracey farms using organic and biodynamic practices. Learn what these applications mean when growing grapes and meet Tracey’s rodeo-loving daughters as they prepare for their future.
