Here’s what we covered on this week’s wine radio show, Wine Oh TV on Radioslot.com. We have got great value wines from all over the world. Looking for amazing but cheap wine? We have found the brand for you. We talk with the one and only Cameron Hughes from Cameron Hughes Wine and find out how drinking outside the box can save you big bucks. Then call it the Academy Awards of the Wine World, find out how you can rub elbows with the wine stars at the Vintners Hall of Fame Inductee Ceremony. Then, looking to put passion back in fashion, we take a tour of Italy with Casa Vinicola Zonin and show you the secret to selecting Italian wines!
After that, we are giving you a taste of some Lake County wines with a French connection. We chat with Xurus proprietor, Ali Namdar. Listen in and find out the history of this winery, their winemaker’s Château Latour upbringing, and discover exactly how you pronounce Xurus!
Then, sink your teeth into a food and wine pairing that is dark, delish and decadent. Jo Diaz gives us yet one more reason to fall in love with Petite Sirah!
Last but not least, we get the goods on booze without the buzz, move over near beer we get to the bottom of wine-less wine with wine expert and founder of Grape Occasions, Shannon Jones.
