This week, Grape Encounters host David Wilson introduces listeners to Jim Newcomb, whose “Sommelier Update” is now the number 2 wine blog in the world. What’s it going to take to get to number 1? Well, you might just be able to help! In this conversation, David and Jim talk about the different types of wine blogs, how to find a good one and much more.
The conversation continues with some words of wisdom about wine tasting room etiquette between David and Sunset Magazine Wine Editor Sara Schneider, who is one very well mannered but unpretentious lady. That conversation ends with some restaurant wine-by-the-glass tips from David that might ruffle the feathers of a few restaurateurs.
Wrapping things up is a spirited discussion about putting ice in wine with one of the countries leading wine experts, Wilfred Wong of Wine.com.
OK, so who will come out in favor of putting a few cubes in your wine glass—David or Wilfred? You may be surprised!
