Barbara Shinn and David Page – native Midwesterners – met in 1988 when they were both living in the San Francisco Bay Area.Their first few years together were spent immersed in the culture of Northern California art and cuisine. In the early 90’s Barbara and David made a bold choice when they decided to move to
NYC to further their careers by opening Home – one of the first farm to table restaurants on the East Coast. After building a successful neighborhood nano-empire with the addition of Drover’s Tap Room and Home Away from Home, Barbara and David set out to reconnect with nature when in 1998 they planted 20 acres of grapevines and built an estate winery and Farmhouse bed and breakfast which has been named a top American wine destination by Gayot, Fodors, U.S. News Travel, Food and Wine and Bon Appetit. This week on In The Drink host Joe Campanale is joined in studio by Barbara Shin for a conversation all about the connection to the earth that wine making gives her and her husband.
