Kerith Overstreet is a triple threat: Bruliam Wines co-founder and winemaker, medical doctor, and mom to three teens.  After retiring from general surgery to pursue pathology and then medicine to raise a family, she tried her hand at winemaking with one barrel. She quickly found she had the chops for it and her fourth baby, Bruliam Wines was established in 2008.

Since then, Kerith has completed her enology courses at U.C. Davis and she is a one-woman show. She does EVERYTHING herself and the lovely single vineyard Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and chardonnay benefit from it. for tickets!

Here are some of the things we cover in the show:

  • Kerith takes us on her journey from growing up in San Diego, to East Coast college and med school student, to single vineyard, terroir-driven winemaker
  • Kerith discusses the interplay between wine and medicine and how it affects her today
  • We talk all about site, growers and why this kind of thing is the obsession of small winemakers
  • We discuss Pinot Noir and why it's such a fascinating grape
  • On a personal note, we discuss family, doing it as a one-woman show, and strange things people have said to Kerith in her time in wine
