A favorite subject on Grape Encounters is the relationship between music and wine and how well they complement each other. On past shows, David has talked about pairing rock, pop and even classical music with wine. But Reggae? Well, it was only a matter of time. And this week we’re talking wine and Reggae in a very big way as David welcomes Carlos Daley, founder and producer of the International Reggae Wine Festival which will take place on October 18th in Montego Bay, Jamaica. So just what kind of wines do Jamaicans drink, and will wine ever be as popular in Jamaica as Red Stripe Beer? Tune in to find out, and find more details at http://www.jirwf.com/
Next David and Wine Guru Wilfred Wong talk about the difference between estate grown and sourced grapes. What exactly are the pros and cons? As always, Wilfred has plenty of juicy tidbits of information to share.
The show wraps up with the first of a two-part conversation with Sunset Magazine Wine Editor Sara Schneider about the changing face and taste of Zinfandel. There’s a lot to know about this distinctly California Wine and if anyone has the skinny on Zinny, it’s Sara!
