David talks with Charlottesville, VA restaurateur and Sommelier Justin Ross about his determination to take the intimidation of ordering wine in his restaurant Parallel 38. Justin uses new technology that enables him to serve every single wine on his extensive list by the glass. Want two ounces of Opus One? You can get it with out having to pay the enormous price.
Next, it’s Grape Encounters news with Larry Gifford serving up his usual ensemble of off the wall wine stories.
Then, winemaker Keith Nichols joins David in a discussion about aging wine before it is ever sold to the consumer. Keith won’t release any wine until it has been aged at least 10 years. Talk about a winemaker with patience!
