This week, David welcomes Tom Acitelli, author of the newly-released book, “AMERICAN WINE: A Coming of Age Story.” This episode is a major wow packed with little-know insight into how America rose to a position of prominence and downright leadership on the worldwide wine stage. Tom Acitelli shares with color and accuracy the amazing story of how American wine after WWII became a giant among world wines. Expect to learn a lot in the first three segments of the show.
Later, Peter Hladun, the VP of Operations for Cork Supply USA joins David to tell how his company is going far above and beyond to make certain that wines sealed by natural cork are free from the dreaded cork taint that sent so many winemakers scurrying to switch from the real McCoy to screw caps and other synthetic enclosures. This discussion will surely give you peace of mind that has long been absent in the wine world.
It’s one of the most educational Grape Encounters of all time. All you have to do is tune in!
