    Wine Around the World with: Dinner for one

    What a trip we’ve taken this season! We’ve been to China, Provence, Bordeaux, South Africa, Tasmania… of course it only makes sense that we finish up in Paris. For the final episode of this season of Wine School Dropout we speak with friend and studio mate Sutanya Dacres of the Dinner for One podcast. Now, Sutanya isn’t a wine professional or in the industry at all… she’s actually the type of consumer we created this show for. With episodes from Season 1 like Wine Language and Finding Your Wine Yoda, we wanted you, our listeners, to be able to gain practical knowledge from each episode that you could take with you and use right away. Sutanya is all about cooking and she makes amazing dishes in her kitchen, all with fresh ingredients from local butchers, fromageries and green grocers. But how is she when she talks to the French caviste? Well, take a listen!


    CREDITS: I know you enjoyed hearing from Sutanya so please follow her on Twitter or Instagram. That's dinner for a period. one, spell out the one. Or dinner phone podcast, dot com.  There you have it everyone, another great conversation to finish out the season here for Wine School Dropout.

    Wine around the world with: Zhuoxu

    Wine around the world with: Zhuoxu

    Some of us think of one thing we want to do or what we’re good at, select a place and then go do that thing. Well, you all know my story and how that didn’t work quite the same for me and not quite the same for today’s guest Zhuoxu. Born in China, but wanting to learn wine at a top institution, he went to California to work a harvest and gain some wine-making skills. Then also worked vineyards in Australia and then went back to China to make wine and work in imports/exports. Zhuoxu’s story is fascinating in how he navigates the differences in the world of wine on multiple continents, from work ethic to translations yet he handles them flawlessly. Currently in China but awaiting his next adventure on another continent, here’s Zhuoxu.

    Wine Around the World with: La Fête du Rosé

    When you think of rosé, you probably think of sunny skies, a sandy beach, or maybe a terrasse with ‘the girls’. But what about drinking rosé in the middle of winter paired with an amazing Christmas dinner you just prepared for your family? Well, the owner of La Fete du Rosé, Donae Burston thought just that. In this episode, Donae reinvents the summer wine and tells us how he developed a new Rosé lifestyle.

    In last season’s episode Wine Language, we talked about the different words wine professionals use to discuss and describe wine. But are those words actually helpful? Today we talk with fellow Wine Educator Curly Haslam-Coates about these words and what people really want to know about wine. Haslam-Coates shares her unique approach to teaching. Live from Tasmania, here is Curly Haslam-Coates.
