Episode 84: Lineage Wine Company: Steven Kent Mirassou

Mr. Wine Guy Podcast

In Episode 83 of the Mr. Wine Guy Podcast I had the privilege of republishing my interview with Steven Kent Mirassou, a 6th generation winemaker who's family has been making wines for a little over 165 years and a guy who's family has pioneered the wine industry! In this episode Steven talks about the viticultural excellence of Livermore Valley when considering weather, soils, sunshine and wind and how, when he originally got into the wine business back in 1996 he wanted to make 1 great wine from Livermore Valley, not just to be another guy making wine, but to stretch the envelope of people's recognition of the appellation they were in. Steven talks about his favorite varietal being Cabernet Franc and how he thinks this varietal is the sexiest grape, describing it as sort of leaving this tension in the mouth while being very acid-driven, running under both generous fruit and an herbal mix. Steven talks about Steven Kent Winery, Lineage Wine Company, and Rag Bag Wine Works and the privilege it is to be making these wines alongside his son Aidan, 7th generation winemaker of the Mirassou Family. Steven talks about some of his biggest inspirations in the wine industry, 2 being Claude Bobba and Brad Buehler of Wente Vineyards and how these gentlemen inspired and educated him about a better understanding of the Livermore Valley.  Also mentioned were Ehren Jordan of Failla Wines, and Steve Matthiasson of Matthiasson Wines. Steven goes on to stress that it's not only people but appellations and wineries that inspire him as well; wineries such as Mount Eden Vineyards who Steven feels makes arguably the best Cabernet out of California, Ridge Vineyards, Spottswoode Estate, and appellations such as Sicily, Barolo, and Barbaresco. Steven also goes on to share his ultimate goal in the wine industry and that is to make people happy and provide an experience for them that makes their life a little better than it was before they had a glass of his wine. With that being said, Steven Kent Mirassou is truly a man whose heart goes way beyond his ability to make world class wines.  Not only that, but Steven's energy in this podcast overflows with so much charisma, and so much enthusiasm, that from the first minute of this episode you know you're in for a treat. Whether you're an aspiring winemaker, or just looking for a little motivation to get you through the day, this podcast is for you!  So sit back, relax, and get ready, because you are going to love this episode.
