    Take a trip to Northern Italy with Barrel to Bottle this week. Chris brought wines from the broader Langhe Hills, along with some everyday drinking wines from the region, and wines from the much-hyped 2019 vintage. As with much of what we feature on the podcast, these wines pair great with a wide variety of food.

    Bock in Business

    We’ve covered bocks before on Barrel to Bottle, but as interest in lagers continues to grow at a rapid pace, Roger thought this was the best time to revisit the style.

    What the Hell Does That Taste Like? vol. 4

    Even the Barrel to Bottle crew can walk the aisles of Binny’s, with our thousands of bottles and cans, and wonder “What the Hell Does That Taste Like?” Occasionally it behooves us then, to do an episode dedicated to answering this question.
    Roger, Chris and Pat have assembled a line-up of beer, wine and spirits that are a little esoteric, a little off the beaten path or just plain odd. Plus, a special treat: the first-ever Binny’s Barrel to Bottle Handpicked.

Gregory, the Wine Legend

We moved away from Hyde Park 5 years ago, so it was a delight to once again hear some of Gregory’s wine stories, which we enjoyed from time to time when we lived there. I would have liked to hear about more of Gregory’s celebrity customers, but Barak Obama does take the cake, so to speak. Thanks—I will definitely listen to some other episodes.
