This week on In the Drink, host Joe Campanale is joined in the studio by Hardy Wallace, the co-owner and winemaker of Dirty and Rowdy Family Winery in Sonoma County CA. In six and a half years, Dirty and Rowdy has gone from a small, two barrel side project, to one of the most sought after wines from CA. Hardy focusses on producing eight single vineyard Mourvèdre wines from all over CA, and a handful of small production white wines.

Dirty and Rowdy started as a project “to make wines to pair with fried chicken,” and regardless of how high or low they’ve climbed / fallen, their fried chicken mission remains the same.
