When we first started the podcast, we didn't know what the appetite for dorkiness was. After almost 2 years of doing this, we've realized it's VORACIOUS!! Yay! That means I can go hog-wild in a crazy oak-a-palooza.
- Philosophies on the use of oak
- Flavors from oak
- Some important factors that go into barrel making/oak selection by winemakers -- location of the forest, new v. used, size, wood drying methods, and why M.C. Ice only wants wine from "split" wood barrels...
After this total nerd-fest, we just keep it going with a fabulous Grape of the Week (yes, we've been slacking!): Blaufränkisch!
And if you've got a question you want us to answer, post it on any of those places and we'll include it on the show!
Thanks for listening! We can't wait to hear from you!
