Gayle and husband David own and operate the Beechwood Inn, a bed and breakfast, in Clayton, Georgia. Both were raised among the vineyards of California; Gayle in the Napa Valley and David in Sonoma County. David’s family owned and operated a restaurant, where he, “learned mostly about food, cooking in the restaurant,” he said, but he also picked up quite a bit of knowledge on wines at the same time. For Gayle, her early education in wines was more osmotic, but still effective. “At first,” she said, “what I always liked about it was the tie to the soil. How involved they were with the earth, the production of the grapes.”
