If you were asked to choose your 101 favorite wineries, there’s no doubt it would be a daunting task.
Well, the massive food and wine themed website, the Daily Meal, asked sommeliers, restaurateurs, wine writers, chefs and wine savvy editors to tackle that very daunting challenge… and the list they came up with is full of pleasant and unexpected surprises, food for thought and lots of fuel for conversation.  And since talking wine is what Grape Encounters is all about, David is pleased to welcome the Editorial Director of The Daily Mail, Colman Andrews, to the show.  Colman is a six-time James Beard Journalism Award winner with numerous renowned food, wine and lifestyle books to his credit.   His byline has appeared in the Los Angeles times, Bon Appetit, Food and Wine Magazine, Travel and Leisure Magazine and many more benchmark publications including Saveur Magazine, which he cofounded in 1994.

David and Colman discuss the top 101 list and then, later in the show, Sara Schneider and David take a closer look at the results together.

The show ends with a series of entertaining and predictably humorous news stories that David can’t resist sharing with you. It’s all fun and games until someone drinks the last drop of the good stuff on this week’s episode of Grape Encounters Radio!
