Dear Bacchus, August 17, 2012

Tomorrow's wine picks offers lots of terrific chardonnays and pinot noirs, among other wines. I've also posted picks for the September 1 release.

I'm having a blast interviewing various people on food and pairing, including wine agent Andrew Von Teichman on pairing wines with fruit-based desserts in Homefront Magazine.

On Google + video, I chat with artisanal cheese retailer Janice Beaton on east coast wines and cheeses and chocolate sommelier Roxanne Browning on why dry red wines work with real chocolate, not candy bars. 

I'm learning so much from these people (and eating and drinking a lot more too). Life is good. Enjoy yours!

In this video chat Janice Beaton and I chat about pairing wines with different cheeses, including gouda, blue, ash-crust and cheddar.

This chat with Janice is broken up in three easily digestible parts, and the conversation about chocolate and wine is in two gulpable pieces.
