Episode #339 – Making Wine on Mars, Pairing Wine with Pulp Fiction, and Enjoying Wine From Rioja, Spain!

On this week’s edition of Grape Encounters Radio, David Wilson ponders the question, “What if I was the only inhabitant on Mars and refused to go without wine.” It’s a question brought on by his recent viewing of the Academy Award nominated film, “The Martian.”

Men may be from Mars and Women may be from Venus, but can this trendy new wine satisfy both the male and female palate? Tune in and find out.Harlequin-wines-150
