Ep37: The Magic of the 45th

Some call it the “Magnificent Mile” for wine growing, but what is really behind all the fuss of the 45th parallel? This invisible line runs halfway between the equator and the North Pole, where some of the best wines of the world are grown. We delve into the fascination of this geographical prominence – is it really magical or is there more to it? – all while drinking a namesake wine coming from the Rhône valley itself, which is knee-deep in those 45 degrees of latitude.

Ep26: California Dreamin’

It all started as a dream out west, where “hicks from the sticks” had a passion for wine but without a platform to stand on. What better way to celebrate our podcast’s 6-month-versary than with an iconic wine and topic that literally brought the great USA into the international wine game?! Popping a bottle of Château Montelena’s Chardonnay, we talk about the 1976 Paris Wine Tasting (aka, the Judgment of Paris) where Californian and French wines went head to head in a blind tasting with a shocking outcome. For an entertaining spin on it, check out the movie Bottle Shock and then listen in as we discuss fact versus fiction about the movie and this historic wine moment! Cheers to Napa’s magnificent triumph!
