12/11/2023
What is "REAL" wine? You may be wondering what that even means -- isn't ALL wine "real"?

Maximilian Riedel On Why Your Wine Glass Matters - #028

2/7/2022
Using the same glass to drink red wines, white wines, and pink wines -- while switching to a "Champagne" flute for sparkling wines, is not the best way to enjoy wine. Listen to Maximilian Riedel, CEO and president of Riedel Crystal, explain why you'll want to use a specifically shaped glass that is designed for the type of wine you're drinking. You may be stunned to find out what he has to say about what kind of glass is best for Champagne and sparkling wines -- it's not what you think (and not THAT, either!). Show Notes: Do you use one, favorite glass for drinking red wines, white wines, and pink wines — while using a flute for sparkling wines such as Champagne? If so, then you’re doing it ALL WRONG. In this podcast episode, wine glass expert and producer Maximilian Riedel of Riedel Crystal explains why you should use a specifically shaped glass that is designed for the wine type you are drinking. And you may be stunned to find out what he has to say about the use of a Champagne glass (also known as a “flute”) when drinking sparkling wines. Born in Austria, Maximilian is the 11th-generation CEO and president of Riedel Crystal, a glassware manufacturer established in 1756(!) and best known for pioneering the concept of grape variety-specific glassware. Maximilian began interning for his family’s company at age 12, and by age 25, moved to the United States and to take on the role of CEO, Riedel Crystal North America. It was then that Maximilian began to make his mark on both the family business as well as the wine industry, serving as the face of the company by hosting workshops and seminars while also developing innovations in stemware and decanters. For example, while living in a tiny NYC apartment, with cabinets too small to house tall-stemmed wine glasses, Maximilian designed the world’s first variety-specific stemless wine glasses (the Riedel “O” Series). Between that time and his promotion to the parent company in Kufstein, Maximilian turned Riedel into a household name, the leading wine glass manufacturer in the world, with its variety-specific glasses carried in nearly every major retail outlet — such as Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Williams-Sonoma, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Crate & Barrel, and many others.

What You Should Know About Wine Ratings with W.R. Tish - #027

1/10/2022
If you've been to a wine shop and seen a numerical rating on a wine -- such as a 90-point score -- you may be wondering if that's a reason to purchase a wine. Or, maybe you're familiar with wine scores and want to know where they came from, why they exist, and/or if you should trust them. In this episode, W.R. Tish -- the first editor-in-chief of Wine Enthusiast magazine and a "recovering wine critic" -- tackles all of these questions and more. This episode will help you understand what wine scores mean and how you can use them -- or ignore them -- to guide your next wine purchase. About W.R. Tish William R. Tisherman, under the pen name W. R. Tish, has been writing and speaking about wine and food for over two decades. Like Cher, Sting and Kermit, one name does the trick. Everyone knows him as Tish. The Pittsburgh native’s first brush with wine was proofreading for Les Amis du Vin wine society in suburban DC. Stung by the wine bug, Tish moved to New York as a founding editor of Wine Enthusiast. He steered the publication for a decade as a spunkier, funnier alternative to Wine Spectator, then went on to write for numerous wine magazines and websites—earning a reputation for both comic relief and on-trend commentary—and founded Wine For All in 1998. Through Wine For All and the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan, Tish has developed events for a variety of Fortune 500 corporations, industry trade groups and law firms—not to mention private parties that would make Bacchus envious. Having first honed his writing at The Harvard Lampoon, his approach to wine veers naturally toward comedy. At the same time, his extensive experience in the trade—most recently at Beverage Media and SevenFifty Technologies—ensures that delicious and interesting wines are always in play. Wine For All brings the humor hammer to gastronomy, as captured in Tish’s motto: “I drink, therefore I am; I eat, therefore I am more.” Visit Tish's site Wine For All: https://www.wineforall.com Follow Tish on Twitter @tishwine https://twitter.com/tishwine Follow Tish on Instagram @tishwine https://www.instagram.com/tishwine/ See Tish's LinkedIn profile here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/w-r-tish-1068433/ If you'd prefer to learn about wines beyond their scores, be sure to visit https://Wine365.com, where you can expand your wine knowledge whether you're a newbie or a connoisseur.

Italy's Friendliest Wine With Alessandro Medici - #023

7/19/2021
Fifth-generation winemaker Alessandro Medici comes from a land of supercars (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati), exotic motorcycles (Ducati), fashion (Armani, MaxMara), and famous food (Parmegiano-Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma, Balsamic vinegar, Bolognese sauce) -- the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. In this conversation, he talks about the wine he makes, and the locals drink -- a refreshing, food-friendly, fizzy red called Lambrusco -- and why you should drink it, too. About Medici Ermete Medici Ermete has been owned and operated by five generations of the Medici family, who have devoted themselves to the winery since its inception in 1890. Alberto Medici, who oversees the production of Medici wines with his father, Giorgio, was born in Reggio Emilia and educated in Economics at the University of Parma. He represents the fourth generation of the Medici family, along with his cousin, Pierluigi, and his sister, Alessandra. The fifth generation, represented by Alessandro Medici, joined the family winery with the aim of both preserving and evolving the historic family property. Alessandro’s first project was the creation of Phermento, a Lambrusco produced in the ancestral or ‘pet-nat’ method, which embraces ancient techniques and modern winemaking simultaneously. The Medici family’s dedication has been rewarded by the success of its wines worldwide. Today Medici Ermete wines are exported to more than seventy countries around the world. Their message of quality has been resoundingly reinforced by elite accolades such as Gambero Rosso’s coveted “Tre Bicchieri” award and the best in show Champion Trophy, earned at the 2010 International Wine Challenge in London.

What To Do With Leftover Wine - #018

4/6/2021
There is absolutely no shame in not finishing an entire bottle of wine -- especially if you're drinking alone. Before you pour what's left down the drain or guzzle a glass for no reason other than "not letting it go to waste," consider that you CAN save the wine for another day -- and if you store it properly, it'll taste almost as good, if not as good, the next time you drink it (in fact, some wines taste even better after being opened). Learn about the best ways to keep leftover wine tasting fresh and delicious by listening to episode #18 of Inside Wine Podcast. Key points from the episode: How air (oxygen), humidity, temperature, light, and odors must be managed Why different types of wine are stored differently Why all colors of wine are stored the same The "half-bottle trick" What to do if you didn't listen to any of the advice from the episode For the images and examples discussed during this episode, follow this link: https://insidewine.cc/leftoverwine Learn more about wine by visiting https://Wine365.com You can also download the Wine365 app in the app store for exclusive content.

How To Find A Chardonnay You'll Love With Chris Dooley - #017

3/24/2021
Do you love Chardonnay or hate it? Chances are, the answer is "both," because there are many more styles of Chardonnay than you may imagine. Sommelier Christopher Dooley explains both ends of the spectrum and everything in between, from the rich, ripe, "butterball style" that wraps around your palate like a warm hug, to "lemon laser water" that is ideal for food pairing. You'll get a full understanding of why you like the style of Chardonnay that you do -- it has to do with from where the grapes are grown and how the wine is made. You'll learn everything you need to know about the "holy trinity of white winemaking" -- barrel aging, lees aging, and malolactic fermentation -- so that you can seek out more Chardonnay wines that you'll enjoy, whether you're drinking a glass on its own or with a particular dish. And yes, you'll get plenty of food pairing suggestions with various styles of Chardonnay. In fact, Christopher can build an entire dinner around Chardonnays, just ask him! More About Christopher Dooley Chris is a former actor who found his way into wine by way of working in restaurants in between shows. A love of telling stories on stage soon became a passion for telling the stories behind wines and winemakers on the dining room floor. Chris began his career in wine in Cincinnati, Ohio. After working at several wine-focused restaurants he decided it was time to move to the east coast. He found himself in Boston where he worked as a sommelier at L’Espalier. Here is where he continued his studies, passing the Advanced Exam held by the Court of Master Sommeliers in March of 2015. Pursuing a dream, he shortly after moved to New York City. Currently, he is the Assistant Wine Director at Eleven Madison Park in New York City making it nice each day and spreading the love for Chardonnay.

Your Wine Is Too Warm - Anthony Giglio's Temperature Tantrum - #016

3/9/2021
This is part 2 of a two-part conversation with wine educator/entertainer/empowerer Anthony Giglio. While this episode stands on its own, if you enjoy it, you'll want to give a listen to part one, which is episode 15, "How To Judge A Wine In 3 Sips." When it comes to wine, does size matter? Not sure, but temperature sure does! How warm -- or cold -- that a wine is, will affect your enjoyment (or non-enjoyment) of it, explains Anthony Giglio. Contrary to popular belief -- and the recommendation of too many "experts" -- red wine should NEVER be served "room temperature" and white wine is not necessarily served "cold" (it depends on what one means by "cold"). Anthony explains why you probably need to drop your next bottle of red wine -- even if it's an aged or expensive one -- into an ice bucket for five minutes. He'll also help you understand why white wines are often served too cold. In the early 2000s, Anthony Giglio visited over a dozen of the top restaurants in New York City to take the temperature of their wines. His resulting article in Esquire concluded that even the very top destinations served their red wines too warm. The backlash triggered a revolution in how wine would be stored and served in Manhattan and beyond. Anthony tells the backstory and front-story of that article, and why it mattered so much toward changing the way people thought about wine temperature. More about Anthony Giglio can be found at his website, https://www.anthonygiglio.com/ Follow Anthony on Instagram @anthonygiglio (https://www.instagram.com/anthonygiglio/) On Twitter, also @anthonygiglio (https://twitter.com/anthonygiglio) And then there is his UH-MAZING performance on The Moth, that you absolutely must hear. We'll talk a bit about it in the second part of this conversation in episode 16, but in the meantime you can hear it here: https://themoth.org/storytellers/anthony-giglio Have a question, comment, or idea for an upcoming episode?

Anthony Giglio on How To Judge A Wine In 3 Sips - #015

2/23/2021
In this episode, I speak with Anthony Giglio about his career journey from a magazine intern to a highly sought-after wine educator/entertainer (though, please don't call him an "edutainer," it makes him cringe). If you've never heard of Anthony, he'd explain himself thusly: "If Kevin Zraly and Josh Wesson had a baby, it would be Anthony Giglio." However, you'd only understand that if you're a wine industry insider, so if you're not, I'll try a better explanation. Try to picture the Jersey swagger and storytelling skills of Bruce Springsteen, combined with the fun and breezy, educating style of Bill Nye the Science Guy, with a dash of Dean Martin's audience-engaging wit, humor, and charm -- and you'll have Anthony Giglio. After the first 15 minutes of hearing Anthony's story, we get into one of the most basic and essential things a person can do when drinking wine -- judge it. Not as in for a wine competition, or to put a score on it, but rather, to judge whether YOU like it. It may sound simple enough, but it takes just a bit of attention to a few details -- and if you follow Anthony's guidance, it will be a simple and fun process that will help you enjoy a glass of wine that much more, help you understand WHY you like certain wines and not others, and perhaps, get a better understanding of why you enjoy (or dislike) other beverages and foods. Best of all, it only takes three sips! The conversation is also abundant with Anthony's insider tips, secrets, and stories that you'll find educating and entertaining (but again, please don't call him an "edutainer"!). For example: Spoiler alert! The conversation is cut short because Anthony goes on a temperature tantrum -- which you'll hear in episode 16 of the Inside Wine Podcast.
