The Connected Table Podcast from the Telluride Wine Festival

 

I had the great pleasure to appear on my friends’, David Ransom and Melanie Young’s, podcast – The Connected Table. In this episode, we talk about my new book, Mirassou family history, Livermore Valley, and what makes Cabernet Franc so damn exciting.

I originally met Melanie and David on a Livermore Valley press junket to New York City a few years. We hit it off then, and they were instrumental in getting The Lineage Collection to the Telluride Wine Festival this year. Telluride is an otherworldly beautiful place, a carpet of Quaking Aspen under your feet as you tram your way up to Mountain Village where many of the events are held. If you love great wine and an amazing location and a lot of enthusiastic and friendly people this event is a must.
