You can study wine until you’re blue in the face but, the simple truth is, the more we think we know about wine, the more we realize how little we actually do. Take wine heritage for example. Did you know that Cabernet Sauvignon is the love child of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc? As a matter of fact, it wasn’t that long ago in the grand scheme of things that Cabernet Sauvignon didn’t even exist. Now it’s the most popular and revered red wine on the planet. Today, David and his favorite wine expert, Wesley Hagen, dive into the heritage of some of our favorite wines. If nothing else, it’s great information that you can use at your next party or get-together. Join us as we take you where other wine programs may forget. We’re here to encourage you to put on your thinking cap, in an all-new edition of Grape Encounters Radio!
