Lake Effect’s wine contributor Ray Fister has been racking up the frequent flyer miles in the past few weeks.

Between trips to California and wine events closer to home, he made time to speak with Lake Effect's Bonnie North while in Milwaukee. 

"’13 was another great one, followed by ’14 – everybody’s sitting on the edge of their chair to see what’s gonna happen in ’15," he says. "Three in a row is pretty unusual – certainly for Napa and Sonoma, they’re very happy."

Ray Fister runs the wine blog and podcast, Life Between the Vines and is the owner of 5th Floor Recording in Milwaukee’s 3rd Ward.
