Dear Bacchus, April 12, 2013

Tomorrow's wine picksi include terrific sauvignon blancs and pinot noirs from New Zealand, shiraz from Australia, and big reds from Italy.

You can also find my latest bargain bottle of the week: wines on sale.

In my recent column for Saltscapes Magazine, I interview sommelier and owner of Obdalee Wine Bar, Heather Rankin, on her tips for pairing wine and charcuterie.

Mario Andretti is not just a champion race car driver, he's also the owner of a winery in Napa Valley.

In this video chat we talk about his two passions and how he puts the pedal to the metal in the wine world.

Have a great weekend!
