89 Twitter Spectators

An action-packed show today! After the pleasantries of Randy’s first mobile bottling line experience, he and Kaz settle into several current topics. First, they are joined by David Honig, creator of the 89 Project, to discuss the curse of wines not rated at least 90 by mainstream critics. He goes on to announce that WineQ will team up to give 89-point rated wines a second chance in the marketplace. Then they enjoy a conversation with Chicago Pinot (on his way to church) leading into a discussion of the Wine Spectator scandal, including a special appearance by Joe Roberts of 1WineDude.com, where he recounts his swim in the Wine Spectator Forum aka The Shark Tank. Finally, they talk about the Twitter Taste Live event of last week, hosted by Bin Ends and Winecast‘s Tim Elliot. Sonadora of Wannabe Wino calls in to recount her experience with the Twitter folks, but gives no hints to September’s Twitter Taste Live that she will co-host. No matter, this week’s show is a blockbuster!
