Thrillist has his story today.
A third generation urban winemaker, he says the alcoholic grape juice is in his blood. And he’s also quick to point out that he has help: Matt started what’s today known as the Village Winery Club; it now has more than 100 members who pay dues (the cheapest membership goes for $200) to cover all of his operating expenses, labor, and even his rent, and in return they get to go to events during the wine-making process, plus access to bottles.
Club members also get to help crush the grapes used for the wines on his outdoor patio. And all this operates under the state's home wine-making laws, which limit the amount of wine one can make, and also prevent him from selling it by the bottle, per Thrillist.
