BTN LiveBIG: Wisconsin's first enologist to spice up the state's wine, cider industries

Wisconsin’s “cheeseheads” might someday have a wealth of local options to pair with the state’s most popular food. And they may have Nick Smith to thank for it. The University of Wisconsin named Smith its first enologist back in March.
