    Discover Rogue Valley

    Discover Rogue Valley

    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 sharing another audio recording of an online seminar I attended from the Oregon Wine Board. This week we Discover Rogue Valley.  

    Directly from their site: Southern Oregon is home to many international varieties that are thriving and garnering a lot of attention. With distinctively crafted wines from vineyards among the best in the world, the Rogue Valley is a community of accessible, craft-driven winegrowers fueled by the awe of our wild and scenic valley, who invite explorers, makers and inspiration-seekers to discover and connect with the natural wonders of Oregon’s Rogue Valley. This seminar is once again led by Master of Wine Bree Stock.

    Baco Noir on Winephabet Street

    Baco Noir on Winephabet Street

    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 return to Winephabet Street where the letter of the day is B for Baco Noir. 

    We are extremely thankful to Carlo DeVito, who not only gave us an incredible webinar, but came back to do it a second time after we had some technical difficulties.  Baco Noir is what is considered a hybrid grape. It was created by crossing two different species of vitis. Typical grape vines, such as Cabernet Franc or Sauvignon Blanc belong to vitis vinifera. However, there are other species of vitis such as lambrusca and riparia. These "Modern Varieties." were created to provide fruit that is resistant to powdery mildew, other fungal diseases, nematodes, and phylloxera.

    Join us as we discuss exactly what is Baco Noir, where did it come from and what is the most similar vitis vinifera in terms of characteristics.  If you find a bottle of Baco, please let me know how you liked it!

    Discover True Portland

    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 sharing another audio recording of an online seminar I attended from the Oregon Wine Board. This week we learn about Urban Wineries in Portland.  

    Directly from their site: The pulse of PDX revolves around the creative craft food and beverage community, driven by the passion of the city’s chefs, brewers, and winemakers. Portland is a thriving landscape for small wine producers. The centralized location of PDX allows makers to source from both Oregon and Washington to create some of the most diverse winery experiences in the State. This seminar is once again led by Master of Wine Bree Stock.

    Jordan Fiorentini of Epoch Estate Wines

    Jordan Fiorentini of Epoch Estate Wines

    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 Jordan Fiorentini, winemaker for Epoch Wine Estates in Paso Robles.

    Growing up in Georgia doesn’t typically lend itself to becoming a rock star winemaker in California. But Jordan isn’t typical.  After falling in love with wine thanks to her father’s wine collecting hobby, Jordan followed up her engineering degree with a Masters’ degree in Enology from UC Davis.  She traveled to Italy for a harvest, and after falling in love with her now husband, returned to Georgia for a bit before packing it up for California. Jordan was named winemaker of the year, and has had a wine land #25 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list. Enjoy the conversation!

    If you would like to go to PasoWineFest on May 21st, use code ETWG_22 for $20 off your ticket.

Great and fun podcast to learn and share about wine!

I recently had the pleasure to not only hear Lori’s podcast but also partake in one of them! Lori is a fantastic host who’s passionate about wine and anything associated with them.

She brings great guests that share in the same love for wines, specific varietals and often with funny, inspiring and introspective anecdotes.

I highly recommend this podcast for anyone wanting to learn more about wine.
