Dirty and Rowdy Family Winery

Hardy and Kate Wallace (Dirty) and Matt and Amy Richardson (Rowdy) created this tiny winery to make wine with minimal intervention. They use their hands and feet and time to produce tiny amounts of incredibly delicious wine. They keep it affordable by leasing acreage and making their wine in a cooperative space alongside other tiny wine makers.

When they're not making wine, they like to get together to make (and eat) spicy fried chicken.
