Christopher Nicolson has been the resident winemaker at Brooklyn’s Red Hook Winery since 2008 but you might not guess he’s also a successful salmon fisherman.  Born and raised in Montana, Christopher’s family has been fishing salmon in Alaska’s Bristol Bay for more than 200 years. When the salmon farming industry blew up in the late 1990s and devastated prices for wild salmon, Christopher and his cousin launched the Iliamna Fish Co. to help sell their family’s yearly bounty directly to chefs like Dan Barber, as well as to home cooks.  Tune in to hear more about this fascinating guest as well as his ventures in wine on this brand new episode of Feast Yr Ears!
