Uncorked: Wine Made Simple
Mon, 10/01/2012 - 9:00pm

In this first episode, we discover what wine is by meeting the people who make it, write about it, cook with it and of course – drink it. We learn how wine happens by talking with winemakers and grape growers. We’ll meet Lettie Teague, executive wine editor for Food & Wine Magazine and her good friend Peter Travers, film critic for Rolling Stone Magazine. Lettie is the author of “Educating Peter” (releases April 2007), a humorous account of how Lettie educated the “most wine ignorant man she knew” (aka Peter Travers) about wine. We’ll learn how the four senses we use to taste wine and compare tasting notes on the ten top grape varieties used in wine making. We’ll also define some important wine terminology and explore the world’s most well-known wine producing regions.
