Rae Wilson of Wine for the People: Endlessly Curious about Wine and Life

Rae Wilson of Wine for the People: Endlessly Curious about Wine and Life

Rae Wilson is founder and winemaker for Wine for the People. Her brands include Dandy rose, Dandy bubbles, plus a new label called La Valentía. She also co-founded The Grower Project with Andrew Sides. Rae’s got a unique background as a sommelier and a wine educator, and I happen to think she’s making some of the best wines in Texas. I've also got all the latest news about the Texas wine industry. Harvest is here! Cheers y'all.
