Recently back from his unforgettable adventure in Southern Oregon, David gives listeners the skinny on the incomparable Oregon Wine Experience. David has been talking about it for several months now and, as a major sponsor of the event, has been chomping at the bit to experience this legendary event firsthand. It’s a pretty good bet that after you hear the complete low-down on this awesome fundraiser for the Asante Foundation and the Children’s Miracle Network, you’ll want to block off some time on you calendar next August and participate in person. In the meantime, you can enjoy it through David’s eyes, ears and palate.
The show begins with a thorough rundown of this extraordinary spectacle. Then, David is joined by the National Sales Manager of Troon Vineyards, Nate Winters, to talk about his company’s transition to Biodynamic farming and grape growing… A very interesting chapter in this well-established winery’s evolution.
Then, Trium Winery co-owner, Tony Corallo, shares what it’s like to win the Best of Show at the Oregon Wine Experience with a varietal that one would simply not expect to win this top honor. Stranger things can happen! All this and more on Grape Encounters Radio, sponsored by David’s preferred source for all things wine, Total Wine and More.
And it’s not all about Oregon, because this is the beginning of harvest across the country, and if you can’t make it to Oregon, it’s likely that the wine country closest to you will also be sharing in the celebrations that herald the most important time of year in the world of wine. Who better to bring this story to you than the folks at Total Wine and More; sponsors of Grape Encounters Radio. One thing is certain… every day of the year is a celebration of wine at Total Wine and More. Check out their website often to see the many things going on at your nearest Total Wine store. The address is simply TotalWine.com.
