(Plus, why it pays to be a Wilson!) Last week, Grape Encounters Host David Wilson and Sara Schneider, the Wine Editor of Sunset Magazine, took on a challenge that may well have been the craziest thing two journalists could inflict upon themselves. It was a blind tasting of Ian Cauble’s SommSelect Blind Six – wines from around the world sent by arguably the most high profile sommelier in the business… Ian Cauble, the star of the hit wine documentary, SOMM. So did they pass, or should the hang their heads in shame. To find out, David met with the Master face-to-face. And so, this edition of Grape Encounters Radio takes you to one of the most acclaimed sub-regions of the Napa Valley, where Master Somm Ian Cauble renders his verdict. Is it a passing grade or a reason to crawl under a rock? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Then, on the lighter side, David is joined by two members of a prestigious winemaking business who have something very special in common with our host. Yep, sometimes its really nice having one of the most common last name in the phone directory. Plus, all the wine news you can drink up with the loveable Larry Gifford. Cheers to you!
