In this week's podcast, we take a deep dive into the Atlantic...and all of the travel between the worlds separated by it. The United States. Europe. It's as contentious as the Ryder Cup. We love the tradition and workmanlike nature of one, just as much as we love the individualism and free-wheeling spirit of the other. But which one are we talking about? And how does this relate to wine?
We talk about transatlantic tastes, styles, and competitions, and what they really are, if they are, in fact, anything more than imagined constructs created by the mythologist in each of us.
The severe, traditional, taut, and sometimes esoteric great wines of Europe. The generous, bold, and upfront great wines of the United States. Where did all this come from? What does it all mean?
Consider this podcast the Titanic. Only, we'll try not to run it into an iceberg.
