Month: April 2008

Wine Biz Radio: April 28, 2008

It’s “Guest-a-licious Monday” at Wine Biz Radio! Kaz and Randy host a triple-header of online wine guests, starting with Tim Elliot of Winecast, who talks about his blog and his seminars on getting wineries to use social media. Next is Rick Bakas of Culination talks about his new business of wine and recipes on your mobile device. Finally, we have Joe Hendricks of Winesmash in to talk about his show and what makes him tick.

Quite possibly the best Wine Biz Radio yet, have a listen!

Wine Biz Radio: April 21, 2008

After a well-deserved week off, Kaz and Randy are back at it, apparently the “dynamic duo” of wine “infotainment”! They speak of a great many things, including current Sonoma weather and Powdery Mildew concerns, current events coming to Sonoma County, and next week’s insanity. Tim Elliot of Winecast calls in to discuss his west coast “Wineries and Social Media” seminars next week. Kaz and Randy hit a nerve in the online wine community when they discuss Jeff Lefevere’s controversial Good Grape post, where he opines that OpenWine Consortium and Wine 2.0 should merge in 2008, prompting a call from Joel Vincent, majordomo of OWC.

This is quite possibly the most jam-packed hour of Wine Biz Radio yet!

Wine Biz Radio: April 7, 2008

Tom Wark comes into the studio to talk with Kaz and Randy about a great many things. Well, at least they beat the American Wine Blog Awards to death. Also, Randy interviews his sister about a wine education experiment based on Chateau Petrogasm‘s innovative take on wine reviewing.

And Randy swears that WBR’s wine reviews will only be available on the podcast. See how he loves his online peeps?

Listen up, the best hour of wine programming is here!

Wine Biz Radio: WBW#44 – French Cab Franc

It’s Kaz and Randy’s first Wine Blogging Wednesday, and they do it up with their usual flavor of banter and good times.

So, what goes best with French Cab Franc? Kaz and Randy do! Take a listen as they review the Charles Joguet 2003 Chinon Clos du ChĂȘne Vert. As an added bonus, while they let the wine breathe, Randy’s daughter Ellie provides a short ad hoc fairy tale for your enjoyment.

Thanks to Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV for this month’s Wine Blogging Wednesday!

Wine Biz Radio: March 31, 2008

Kaz makes a habit of psychotic introductions to the show, and he and Randy talk some viticulture goodness during frost season. Then they get a caller to promote the Day of Responsible Hospitality (to support Project Graduation in Sonoma County) this Wednesday from noon to 5 p.m. at Empire College in Santa Rosa. Next is recognizing the winners of the American Wine Blog Awards, and wrapping up with excerpts from Tim Elliot’s Winecast Unfiltered
that Kaz and Randy participated with.

Listen up, Spring fever has come to the best hour of wine radio!
