    Wine Around the World with: La Fête du Rosé

    When you think of rosé, you probably think of sunny skies, a sandy beach, or maybe a terrasse with ‘the girls’. But what about drinking rosé in the middle of winter paired with an amazing Christmas dinner you just prepared for your family? Well, the owner of La Fete du Rosé, Donae Burston thought just that. In this episode, Donae reinvents the summer wine and tells us how he developed a new Rosé lifestyle.

Today we talk with fellow Wine Educator Curly Haslam-Coates about these words and what people really want to know about wine. Haslam-Coates shares her unique approach to teaching. Live from Tasmania, here is Curly Haslam-Coates.

    Wine School Dropout is back

    Wine School Dropout is back

    Since the end of our first season, the wine world has been shaken up by COVID-19 and questions about representation in the wine industry for BIPOC. WSD has always been about making wine easier to understand for everyone, (of age of course) because wine is for all.


    In an effort to spread this message to a wider audience, host Tanisha Townsend will be speaking with Oliver Gee of The Earful Tower on Sunday June 14th at 9pm Paris time to talk about race and representation in the wine world.


    Here's a link to the live stream event this weekend.


    We all have a lot of work to do to make the wine world more inclusive: So, your assignment, if you choose to accept it: Catch up on Season 1 of WSD and tune in this weekend on IG and on the WSD feeds this week. And support content by creators of color by listening, liking and donating where you can. You can also support our show and help us continue amplifying underrepresented voices in the wine industry by making a donation here.
