Ep 69: 2022 Paso Wine Industry Person of the Year – Booker Vineyard | Saxum

February 16, 2023

Today we have two memorable guests on their own, we can’t believe we have them together. Adam interviews Eric Jensen of Booker Vineyard and Justin Smith of Saxum.

Eric, honored by Paso Wine as 2022 Paso Wine Industry Person of the Year, is always an exciting guest. Presenting his award to him is one of his two mentors, Justin Smith of Saxum. The first Booker wines were made at Saxum and we will actually be opening one today. That wine, The Ripper, from 2005.

We also feature Donovan Schmit of Fish Gaucho, Pappy McGregor’s, 1122 Cocktail Lounge & Speakeasy, and their newest joint downtown, Cane Tiki Room in our Travel Paso spotlight. Check out TravelPaso.com for more.
