Thoughts from the desk of MATHIAS EICHLER

Charles Smith in Seattle

He’s opening a winery complex in Georgetown in Seattle.

Charles on his beginning:

I never thought after my teens that I would have to go back to Top Ramen, and at 40 years old, there I was with my wok and my bag of carrots and an onion and my Top Ramen making stir-fries.

Gotta put it all on the line to live your dream.
