Daniel Liberson, the owner and self-proclaimed, “Vinegar Geek” at Lindera Farms, joins us. A chef by training, Daniel got his start in fine dining in the DC area working at fine dining restaurants like Volt, Blue Duck Tavern and Rose’s Luxury. After taking on the family farm in nearby Virginia, he morphed his chef skills into foraging for organic ingredients and brewing spectacular vinegars for some of the best restaurants in the U.S., including the Michelin-starred restaurants here in Washington.
Also joining us is renowned winemaker Jean Claude Riefle, the proprietor of the Grand Cru Steinert vineyard, overlooking the village of Pfaffenheim in northeastern France. Six generations have built the family's winemaking tradition since it began in 1850, and Steinert’s wines are prized the world over for their distinctive, refined tastes.
