Episode #294 – A Double-Whammy for Finger Lakes Winemakers!

Then, Out of the Cold and a Little Barefootin’ With Randy Arnold!

This week’s Grape Encounters takes you from the frigid cold weather that is threatening the grape crops in the east, to the tepid drought-plagued west and a little barefoot romping with the Brand Ambassador of Barefoot wines who made an unscheduled visit to the Grape Encounters studios just as we were wrapping up our broadcast.

What’s the latest on the storage of fracked gas under the Finger Lakes? Is Mother Nature making things even worse in the Wine Country of the Year? And why is Barefoot Wine so darn popular? The answers to all these questions and the latest wine news with Larry Gifford this week on Grape Encounters Radio with David Wilson!

Vines Across America – We Support Winemakers in New York

In case you missed our show about fracking in the Finger Lakes wine region a few weeks back, David spoke with Will Ouweleen, owner of O-neh-da and Eagle Crest Vineyards, and Joseph Campbell of Gas-Free Seneca in the Finger Lakes region of New York, about this wine region which is up in arms to stop the government to allow businesses from outside the region from creating what many believe to be a danger to their wine and tourism industry. Listen to Episode #289 to get a better explanation of the fracking gas storage in salt caves problems and concern.
