Fresh from the airwaves...it's Episode 008 -- Wine Gadgets & Glasses: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly.
Here's the link: PODCAST
We got this week's show idea from listener, Scott Harrah. Thanks for the suggestion!
After covering some great emails, blog comments, and posts on the Facebook page we talked about the latest out of Canada. Scientists there claim to have discovered a strain of yeast that would prevent Red Wine Headaches or "RWH" syndrome as it's commonly called. I still say it's inconclusive but you can decide...
- Here's a link to the Decanter Article that we talked about.
- ...and another to an older Wall Street Journal Article. Sadly, even though it's old not much has changed since it was written. If anyone has about $60K to pour into a research study on the topic, I bet UC Davis would be happy to receive it!
After news, we hopped into the main topic. We reviewed...
- Wine Glasses - White, Red, and Sparkling (I say simplicity is best)
- Aerators & Decanters -- find out why I'm a hater on the aerator and a decanter lover
- Preservers -- I'm not a gadget girl but thumbs up on this
- Openers (I'm so opinionated...listen to learn more)
- Chillers - In case you don't have a fridge in your home
- Wine Stain Remover - an absolute must-have!
Our grape of the week is one of Rick's favorites: Albariño (or Alvarinho in Portugal). A tasty, unique, and delicious Spanish white!

Addendum: Listener Josh (comment below) brought up the fact that we mentioned a ton of brands in this show...something we don't usually do! He was in his car listening and said it was hard to keep track of all the brand names and suggested we put links to everything we mentioned here... your wish is my command : )
