Season II: Vailia From


Vailia is the owner and winemaker behind Desparada, a wine label out of Paso Robles. Vailia is wise, energetic, and adventurous, both in life and in work. I talked with her about her career trajectory, about opera, how wine became a thing for her, and what it’s like to raise a child during harvest, when both parents are winemakers.
