On Cape Ann Profiles host Rich Sagall interviews David Tower, Steve Whittey and Neil Dineen, three Cape Ann wine makers.
David Tower, founder of a Massachusetts winery in the 1980’s with an annual production of 16,000 cases, now leads a small winemaking group that produces 2,000 bottles a year. He has a Master’s degree in winemaking and two years apprenticeship in Germany’s wine country. He’s currently the chemistry teacher at Rockport High School.
Steve Whittey, a Gloucester native, is a West Point graduate and retired US Army Major. He is also a recently retired Rockport High School math teacher. As assistant winemaster, he aids Tower in the technical aspects of the winemaking and leads the wine crew.
Neil Dineen has been teaching history for 32 years, both in Virginia and Massachusetts. He is the current high school history teacher at Rockport High School. Involved with the wine group since 1996, he enjoys the people and the winemaking and says his extended family loves the gifts.Cape Ann Profiles can be seen on Cape Ann TV Channel 12 on Friday, March 15 at 10:30AM and 7:00PM and on Sunday, March 17 at 2:00PM.
