Family members of 2 critically acclaimed North Fork wineries talk about the area's transformation from potato farms in the 1970s to today's commercial vineyards. The question is how to secure the future of these enterprises; are young people attracted to the wine industry? Vineyards are deluged with requests for internships - for an opportunity to learn, hands-on, the business of growing premium grapes and making quality wine.
