Guest Biography: 

Kurt Giusti – Vintner – Via Giusti Wines

In 2009 Kurt Giusti felt a call to honor and preserve the Giusti Family’s 140-year Sonoma County farming tradition and continue the family legacy, which has transcended into Via Giusti Wines. Wine making was a part of the family heritage, but only for personal use, Kurt would help and work in the family orchard, and at their apple juice plant, Giusti Apple in Sebastopol. To this day, Kurt splits his time between the family ranch, running the winery and managing overall ranch operations. Kurt takes pride in the fact that he is continuing the family tradition in Sonoma County agriculture, and is also growing the family brand by expanding into the wine industry beyond farming. “We take pride in our heritage and the efforts we put into each part of the ranch operations and the wine produced. I Know that the attention to each detail makes all the difference in the quality of everything we do, especially the wines!” Salute!

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host: 
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
