The Dirty (Hardy & Kate) and Rowdy (Matt & Amy) families got together for a simple purpose; make honest wines that we want to drink.
There’s a long story about Dirty and Rowdy involving blogs, videos, dream jobs, Atlanta, late nights spent cooking spicy fried chicken in an old cast iron skillet, and a sincere love of real wine and real food.
After years of fried chicken it was only logical that we would start a band…or better yet, a winery. In 2010 we began making wine — these are wines with knees, elbows, and open hearts.
Gary and the crew head to Napa, California to talk with Hardy Wallace, co-founder of Dirty and Rowdy Family Winery, an artisan wine maker that's breaking all the rules. Then they head to San Marino, California to meet up with Shaun and Gary Tuch, the founders of Professor Egghead, an interactive science and engineering program for kids.
