Is orange the new rosé? The explosion in popularity of natural wines has turned the wine world on its ear and may signal a return to ancient winemaking techniques. But what makes a wine natural, anyway? And how do you order it without sounding ridiculous? Amanda and Dan call in wine expert Joe Campanale, owner of Brooklyn’s Fausto and LaLou, to conquer their natural wine insecurities and learn a little bit about the history of the movement in the process. Plus, we look at the controversy surrounding a Momofuko investor, catch up with Kevin O'Leary's spending habits, and make a Pad Thai confession.
