Goats, chickens and squirrels in Glen Ellen

Remembering Joe Miami

Jim Shere, executive director of the Glen Ellen Historical Society, is on the hunt for some information and interviews. You can help.

If you knew Joe Miami, a mid-century Italian viticulturist, Jim would like to talk to you. Mary Kate Carter, a well-known volunteer with our Glen Ellen Village Fair Committee, is Joe Miami’s niece and she’s led Jim Shere to a few folks who knew Joe. Jim’s eager to talk to a few more.

Although, as Jim says, “Not well known by most of us, Joe is remembered with deep respect by a great number of our more seasoned winemakers.”

Jim seeks to examine some of the practices that Joe Miami believed in, including “how to recognize and encourage what nature intends, how to participate with life rather than manipulate and exploit it, and how to be carefully concerned about every step of the journey toward its eventual goal,” as Jim Shere discussed in a recent Kenwood Press article.
