done did it. I am so
thrilled, honored,
relieved, excited, nervous
and exhilarated to
announce the formation of Wine
Talks LLC...a no nonsense, no BS,
matter-of-fact podcast on wine.
Once a week, I will be hosting a noted wine
critic, Master of Wine, Master Sommelier,
wine author, wine writer or winemaker. We
will pick a wine subject and beat it down…
get to the edges and reveal the behind-
the-scenes opinions and thoughts. Our first
episode is with Molly Hill of Sequoia Grove
Winery in Napa Valley, and we
tackle the concept of “natural wine.”
290 WINES EVALUATED | 247 WINES REJECTED | 43 APPROVED

As well, for over 10 years now I have interviewed and entertained some of the most prolific winemakers
in the world. From the Napa Valley to the South of France, from Slovenia to Bordeaux, France, I have
tasted and questioned many of the greats. We have discussed the passion it takes to make wine, the
relationships with the wine-drinking public, biodynamic farming, sustainable farming, the economics
of running a winery and much more. Each of these interviews is now available as an audio podcast,
ready for your listening pleasure. You can listen to Jacques Lardière, the legendary French winemaker
from Louis Jadot, or Robert Mondavi, Jr., the grandson of the great Robert Mondavi of Napa fame. I have
interviewed Clovis Taittinger of Taittinger Champagne and Guy de Rivoire of Bollinger Champagne…and
list goes on. Each a fascinating conversation on its own, but all told, an amazing way to view wine from
the next level up. Available wherever you find your favorite podcasts, and on our website.
