Meet LGBTQ+ winemaker Krista Scruggs
This LGBTQ+ winemaker is taking on her biggest challenge yet: breaking ground on her first plot of land. But her passion for winemaking is about so much more than just what comes off the vine.

Burlington, VT -- How does a breakup taste? According to Krista Scruggs, it tastes like a fine glass of cabernet. She's a Vermont winemaker who has a knack for distilling feelings, songs, and films into a vintage blend for you to enjoy with friends or, all by yourself.

Inspired by her homesteading grandfather, she's now embarking on her most significant venture yet, her own vineyard. "For me, the most radical, political thing you can do in this world is to grow your own food and not be reliant on anyone else."
