Nicolas joins us in the KOOP studios to talk about making wine in Burgundy. Nico is part of the new generation of excellent Burgundy winemakers and makes 13 wines from excellent vineyards in Volnay, Pommard, Savigny-les-Beaune, and Pernand Vergelesses. His passion for Pinot Noir really comes through, and he has quite the affinity for the no-nonsense Texas way of life.
Steven Dilley, owner of Bufalina, and Murph Willcott, owner of Texas French Bread, come on the show to talk all things pizza and the Austin restaurant scene. These guys are lovers of vibrant wine made by real people, growers that we can get behind and support. Beaujolais, Muscadet, Burgundy, and the new wave of California producers are such highlights!
Neal Rosenthal is celebrating 40 years in the wine business, starting as a retailer in New York and quickly moving to importing. He was just in Austin, and we caught up with him in person to talk about his history, tastes, and recommendations to our younger generation of wine professionals.
