If you’ve ever vacationed in a European port city, you’ve likely admired some of the world’s finest luxury yachts. This week on Grape Encounters, Australian Chrissie McClatchie takes us into the lifestyle of the rich and famous at sea from her office in Nice, France. Chrissie works at Vins Sans Frontieres, a company that provisions those yachts with some of the world’s finest bottles of wine, not to mention amazing food.
Sara Schneider, the wine editor at Sunset Magazine, engages in more discussion with host David Wilson about Inexpensive Wines you’re likely to find at retail outlets near you. Often times, some of the best valued wines may just be from lots that haven’t sold particularly well and are branded with quirky, obscure labels that you’re not likely to find elsewhere. So, what should you look for on that label? Sara and David have some great ideas that may lead you to be surprised at just how good of a deal you have landed.
And, are you a collector of Corkscrews? It’s become all the rage! You may just be surprised to find out that some corkscrews are valuable enough to land you in the Mediterranean-cruising lifestyle. Gadget Guru Matt Dubow talks with David Wilson about the different types and how you can start your own cool collection today if you haven’t already with EpicStyle.com.
