Kendall Jackson exec and Ambassador of Flavor Michael Jordan (no, not the basketball player!) joins host David Wilson from the Aloha State to discuss why juice makes a difference when making wine. Don’t get duped by picking up a bad bottle because it is well disguised by a clever label and made from ‘orphaned juice.’ The Sommelier of the People shares his wisdom about vino produced by phantom wineries.
Then, you may be surprised to know that spuds aren’t the only flavorful crop growing in Idaho. Moya Schatz Dolsby is executive director of the Idaho Wine Commission and shares her wisdom and sense of humor with your host, who it turns out has a thing for wines from the state that brings you world famous potatoes.
Sara Schneider, wine editor of Sunset Magazine, says there is much more to know than when to spit when she and David talk about etiquette in winery tasting rooms. It’s a lesson in Do’s and Don’ts.
