Art of Business: The Taste of Teamwork

Founded in 2015, Milea Estate Vineyards wines started winning awards with their very first crush that autumn. Vintner and co-owner Bruce Tripp says they've found themselves immersed in a collaborative brotherhood of the grape. "The craziest thing is the cooperation that goes on between the wineries," he says. "We're in competition as one region among many, but if our region does well then we all do well. I'm vice president of the Hudson Valley Wine and Grape Growers Association; we met just last night, as we do every few weeks early in the year, to blind-taste and rate each other's wines in process straight from the tank or barrel. There's a lot of conversation and analysis; we help each other identify faults we may not have noticed on our own and address those. We also share resources; if someone has surplus grapes, they'll call around to see who can use them."
