New Jersey wine? Yup, it's an actual thing, as my guest Kathleen Willcox attests to. A freelance wine writer for Wine Enthusiast, Wine Searcher and Spirited Biz, Kathleen has become quite the expert on wineries of the northeast U.S. and, having recently returned from a exploratory trip, now sings the praises of New Jersey wine. Being California born and bred (and a Certified Napa Valley Wine Snob), I was fascinated at the opportunity to sit down with Kathleen, taste through a few NJ wines (including what turned out to be an extraordinary 2016 Brut Reserve Sparkling Wine from William Heritage)and learn all about it. So, grab a glass from The Garden State and wonk out with us!
