Episode #286 – What Celebrity Does This Wine Remind You Of?

Plus, What if You’re in the Mood for Something Cheap?

Well, we didn’t have enough time to have the Pope on, but we’re hoping he can join us very soon. All kidding aside, this week’s Grape Encounters begins with the Grape Encounters news and one very amusing story about a California Winemaker who found favor with the Pontif.
Next, Grape Encounters is pleased to welcome Chris Kern, the founder of The Forgotten Grape… a website and business dedicated to making less familiar grape varietals better known by comparing them to famous personalities. So what grape is most like Alec Baldwin… or Oprah? You’ll have to listen to find out.
Finally, Sara Schneider, the illustrious Wine Editor of Sunset Magazine, one of the nation’s largest and most prestigious lifestyle publications, joins David in a friendly debate about inexpensive, bulk produced wine and whether it really can be delicious AND serve a very good purpose!
Break out the good stuff… or the cheap stuff if you prefer, and enjoy this week’s very lighthearted edition of Grape Encounters Radio hosted by David Wilson.
