Empowering Women Winemakers with Christina Musto

Christina Musto (@threadsandvino) is the 4th generation of a family wine business, Musto Wine Grape Company, based in Connecticut where she works with commercial and home winemakers to provide them with the tools and grapes they need to make great wine.

She is a long-time member of the American Wine Society, has studied at UC Davis, and has her Wine Business MBA from Sonoma State University, and on top of all of that is a founding member of Women Winemakers of Connecticut.

Christina was wonderful to have on the show. I learned a lot from her about the Connecticut wine scene, what its like sourcing grapes from California, Chile, and South Africa, and we bonded over our similar goals of creating communities of like minded and passionate people in the wine industry.
