    In Part II of my interview with Thomas Bachelder I learned a lot, mispronounced vineyard names + what does it really mean when a wine is made in the “Burgundian Style”. Also Thomas expands on this insight:
    "Ontario wine is in a great place as consumers are shifting away from heavy/high alcohol wines. Our grapes can fully ripen BUT still have 12% alcohol."

    In Part I of my interview with legendary winemaker Thomas Bachelder we discuss his journey from getting a winemaking kit from his brother to making wine in Niagara, Oregon & Burgundy. Interesting stuff about what to do at harvest and people telling you lousy wine stories.

    On the latest wine podcast Matt is joined by the “2002 Winemaker of the Year” (Ontario Wine Awards) owner/winemaker for Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery Sue-Ann Staff. Sue is a 5th generation grape grower operating a 100-acre grape farm in Niagara’s Twenty Valley perched on the top of the Niagara Escarpment.  We go all in on Riesling and I get Sue to expand on some of her recent quotes:
     ‘People who think it’s cool to start wineries underestimate the work’
    “A winemaker is a glorified janitor”

    In Part II of my interview with Sommelier & Wine Consultant Renée Sferrazza we go over the glory of Barolo, just how bad Renée’s grandfather’s homemade wine was (It was bottled in large plastic Sprite bottles) and comparing wine to both ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Jaws’.

    This interview with Sommelier & Wine Consultant Renée Sferrazza was so much fun we had to divide it into two parts. In Part One we learn all about the Piedmont wine region, why Dolcetto is a great “Tuesday Wine”, how Renée went from studying to be a diplomat to getting into wine and tales of trying to order wine when out with a bunch of friends at a restaurant.
