Before tweetups and meetups and facebook-ups and such, there were old-fashioned industry mixers. Wine Biz Radio was fortunate to be taping during one held at the Kaz Winery, and you all benefit! Interviews galore!
As an added bonus, Randy leaves in the middle of the show, and it gets even busier after that! Listen to the parade of wineries!
The best radio producer in the world (or at least in the Kaz Studios) can’t win them all. When the guest we thought we were going to have can’t make it, it’s up to Kaz, Randy and X to come up with something interesting to talk about. They apparently did a good job!
X brings a couple bottles of “mystery wine” that Kaz and Randy try to identify, and they discuss several upcoming events and recent news items. Useless information, you say? You got that right, but it’s still the most entertaining hour of wine radio you’ll find!
Randy and Kaz discuss the TTB’s new recommended rule changes on AVA assignments, vineyard management as a practice, Robert Mondavi Winery and their “Essence Tour”, the holiday event for the Heart of Sonoma Valley, and wine certification. Listen and learn!
Kaz and Randy have Tom Wark (of Wark Communications) come to visit. The weather gets predicted, The Book gets reviewed, Randy retches about liver-oyster-mushroom-eggplant casserole, podcasts as Chia pets, Josie Gay of Heart of Sonoma Valley promotes this weekend’s Spotlight on Zinfandel event, as well as previewing next spring’s Barrel Tasting. Kaz officially invents online wine tasting (just lick your monitor), and you get all the latest news you’ve come to expect from Wine Biz Radio.
