September 18, 2007
Lucian Dressel was one of the pioneers in the rebirth of the Missouri wine industry in the 1960s and ‘70s and its growth in quality and popularity over the next two decades. Now he’s trying again in nearby Illinois at the Mary Michelle Winery in Carrollton, where he is general manager and winemaker.
