BEST OF EPISODE: How much would you pay for wine?

1/13/2020
More
Something new for the podcast today. Life is hectic and sometimes you need to do things out of necessity. I was unable to produce an episode for this week, so I thought I would go back and find one of my most popular episodes and provide an opportunity for my new listeners to hear it and my dedicated listeners to remember the fun we had in discussing the outrageously priced bottle of wine. I got together with some wine writing friends to discuss a topic in the wine world that has been...

Vineyards Talk; Winemakers Listen

1/6/2020
More
Today's podcast is a science podcast.. well, sort of a science podcast. I don't get into all the geekdom that I have been known to get into in the past, but it is about the science of the vineyard and the decisions that are required to make the best wines that the site allows. As promised in the podcast, I have included an image of the beautiful kouloura and a link to our podcast on Assyrtiko. Follow me on Instagram! Follow me on Twitter!

Answering Those Burning Wine Questions

12/30/2019
More
I am answering some of those burning wine questions on today's podcast. I reached out to some amazing women in a Facebook Group I belong to called “She Podcasts.” I asked them to submit questions they had about wine that they either didn’t want to ask in public or didn’t necessarily know where to go to find the answers. They responded with some great questions. I am sure they are not the only ones with these questions, so I hope that my answers can help some of you learn a little bit more...

Winephabet Street: B is for Barbera

12/9/2019
More
Hey everyone! Welcome to Exploring the Wine Glass sponsored by Dracaena Wines. Today we return to Winephabet Street where the letter of the day is B and it stands for Barbera. Barbera is a versatile red grape from Piemonte, Northern Italy. Since there has been no genetic relationship to any other native Piemontese grape, it is thought that the grape must have been imported into the region sometime in the recent past. Barbera use to be known as the “Piemonte People’s Wine” since it was so...

Wines of Australia

Hey everyone! Welcome to another episode of “The Allure of the Pour.” Today, I am so excited to sit down with Mark Davidson, Education Manager for North America for the Wines of Australia. If I’m in full disclosure, this episode should have been released over a month ago, as I was lucky enough to attend the Far From Ordinary Roadshow in New York City and interviewed Mark on the streets of NYC. However, technology failed me and the recording was not acceptable. Luckily, Mark was kind enough...

Welcome to Exploring the Wine Glass podcast. On this series that I have renamed The Allure of the Pour, I sit down with Roger Bissell. About one year ago, I was invited to a Master Class on the wines of Macedonia. I was intrigued. I had never had wine from there, and thought it would be an excellent educational experience.

On this episode of Exploring the Wine Glass, I sit down with Simon Solis Cohen of Tating Merchants, your online resource for small batch wines. I first met Simon on Instagram. I may have mixed feelings about the platform, but in this case it proved to know what it was doing when they recommended Tasting Merchants. I clicked the follow button and liked several of the photos, and then there was a DM. We conversed a few times within Instagram and then decided a phone call was in order. I...

Cary Gott of Calla Lily Winery

9/16/2019
More
The name Calla Lily comes from a Greek word for beauty. At some point during the 19th century, flowers began to be associated with the expression of specific feelings and the stunning cone shaped calla lily became the symbol of youth and rebirth. You will often find it in arrangements that are sent for major transitions, such as births and new beginnings. It is also the symbol of the latest wine venture for fourth generation winemaker Cary Gott. On this episode of Exploring the Wine Glass,...
