I got to talk about Sauternes on the podcast Everyday Drinking!!

…and then Jason Wilson let me write about Sauternes as well…

This is Wine

This is Wine is a place learn about wine, but more importantly, to make a connection with the story of wine. Wine can transport you to its homeland, or act as a conversation between a wine lover and a winemaker. It can be a conduit to a similar taste-memory, or a complement to a food such that the pairing is greater than the sum of the parts.

My hope in these pages is to find a way for you to connect to the world of wine. To that end, during the quarantine when our “getting out there” is limited, I’m hosting this series of Vineyard Chats and leading virtual wine tasting sessions. As things progress, I’ll reconnect with hosting events, tastings, and dinners. Please subscribe to my newsletter for announcements of upcoming events.

Vineyard Chat Series

Each weekday I’ll be chatting with a winemaker from their vineyard on Instagram Live. I’m hoping it will provide a break from everybody’s confinement, a chance to learn about the wine, and the state of winemaking under these challenging times. At 10am EST, each weekday, tune in to my Instagram page @JEFFHARDING, click on my pic in the profile, and choose “LIVE” – Afterwards, I will be posting the interviews to my IGTV channel and also hosting on YouTube.com/jeffharding .
