Jean Charles Boisset with David

Good grief! It’s been nearly two years since Jean-Charles Boisset has graced the airwaves of Grape Encounters Radio… but this episode was probably well worth the wait as Jean-Charles and David take on a broad range of topics; from climate change to Jean-Charles’ determination to document and preserve American wine history. And it’s not just about putting it into words. Jean-Charles has been busily creating brick and mortar places where we can all gain a better understanding of how America became a force to be reckoned with on the world wine stage. And yes, all this from a Frenchman! Here’s to you, Jean-Charles!
