    Weird But True Wine Laws

    Weird But True Wine Laws

    It’s Monday, Let’s raise a glass to the beginning of another week. It’s time to unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and let’s begin Exploring the Wine Glass! Today I am sitting down with a group of wine writing friends to discuss some crazy wine laws. We know that the 3-tier system is a crazy enough, but these laws are downright insane! We can’t even begin to figure out what was going through the legislatures’ minds when they wrote these laws. For example: In New Jersey, if you are arrested for drunk driving, you have to pay the fine, BUT you are no longer eligible for vanity plates! Oh the horror! We had a few laughs on this one and I hope you do too!

    The Ins and Outs of Starting a Wine Collection

    The Ins and Outs of Starting a Wine Collection

    It’s Monday, Let’s raise a glass to the beginning of another week. It’s time to unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and let’s begin Exploring the Wine Glass! Today I sit down with David Parker founder and CEO of Benchmark Wine Group, located in Napa Valley. Benchmark Wine Group is the leading source of fine and rare wine for wine retailers, restaurants and collectors around the world.  
    We discuss how to begin collecting wine, some suggestions for not only varietals but regions that will age well and provide the best bang for your buck if you add them to your collection. David also shares his knowledge of the best conditions to store wine to allow them to age properly and how all wines worthy of collecting do not need to be hundreds of dollars.

    Master Class, Franciacorta

    Master Class, Franciacorta

    It’s Monday, Let’s raise a glass to the beginning of another week. It’s time to unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and let’s begin Exploring the Wine Glass! Today we are travelling virtually to Italy thanks to a Master Class arranged by Napa Valley Wine Academy, America’s premier wine school. Franciacorta is located in the Lombardy region of northern Italy within the Brescia province, the region is nestled at the foothills of the Alps. Franciacorta refers not only to the name of the region, but the wine and the style of production. Franciacorta, like Champagne, makes their sparkling wines using the traditional French méthode champenoise, or “Classic Method,” with the second fermentation in the bottle. 
    Join me as we dive into the very special region that produces exceptional sparkling wines led by Peter Marks Master of Wine and Giammario Villa Master Taster.

Today we return to Winephabet Street where the letter of the day is O and it stands for Orange wine.  We went right to the source to get the best information on making Orange or Amber wine. Craig Camp of Troon Vineyard is a trail blazer in the field, and we were lucky enough to sit down with him and pick his brain.

Something New In Every Glass

I’m really enjoying listening to these! Lori is so at ease and does a great job engaging with her guests. I’ve found out something new in every glass - I mean - in every podcast! With a couple more months of winter and who the heck knows about Covid, I’m hoping I will be able to catch up quickly!
