Michael Cruse (@crusewine) is the winemaker and owner of Ultramarine and Cruse Wine Co. based in Petaluma, California.

In this episode, Michael and I dig into his background and how he got into the wine world, the terroir of California and how Michael is working to share that through his wines, and where his love of sparkling wines come from.
