1WineDude TV Episode 52: Alexandra Manousakis On The Challenges (and Ironies!) Of Crete’s Modern Wine Biz

Vinted on August 7, 2012 under 1WineDude TV, interviews, on the road

In this episode of 1WineDude TV, I talk (on location!) with with Alexandra Manousakis, whose family makes wine from Rhone varieties on the Greek island of Crete. Aside from prettying up things here on 1WDTV, Alexandra gives us an insider’s take on Crete winemaking history, along with her insights on the challenges facing Cretan wine on the international stage. Yes, the cicadas are annoying (believe me, I removed 90% of their noisy asses from the video already!); get over it, and enjoy…

1WineDude TV Episode 51: On Wine Reviews

Vinted on July 25, 2012 under 1WineDude TV, wine blogging

Today, I thank YOU for being you and putting up with my freakish take on wine reviews, I make good on losing a bet, and I ramble a bit about why wine reviews aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. This one’s raw, but it’s from the heart. So watch, if you’re so inclined, and then just vote already, will ya?!?

1WineDude.com TV Episode 50: When You Turn Purple (Go Inside The Haro Wine Battle 2012!)

Vinted on July 10, 2012 under 1WineDude TV, on the road

In this (the fiftieth!) episode of 1WineDude TV, I take a few hundred years of bizarre Rioja wine tradition head-on, and live to tell about it (though my clothes clearly get the worst of things), as part of my recent jaunt to the Rioja winemaking region with Vibrant Rioja.

Herein, you will witness a great deal of wine (don’t worry, it wasn’t Gran Reserva, trust me) being spilled on (probably drunken and/or quite hungover) Spaniards, a little bit of questionable behavior by said Spaniards (sorry, couldn’t resist including that moment, because I’m just not nice enough of a guy), and a whole lot of fun being had by all.

And yes, I know the video is crazy, shaky (it was a wine wartime correspondence, after all) and hazy (the camera was wrapped in a hotel shower cap for its protection – and yours, I think – for reasons that will become very obvious once you start watching). So… go easy on the camera-people, and enjoy!

1WineDude TV Episode 49: Getting Chile With Master Somm Fred Dexheimer

Vinted on June 26, 2012 under 1WineDude TV, interviews

I caught up with Master Sommelier and heavy metal aficionado Fred Dexheimer at the recent Wines of Chile Grand Tasting in NYC (for which I was a media guest) – always a potentially dangerous but certainly joyful occurrence (those who know Fred well will understand what I’m talking about there…) – and managed to get a few minutes on camera with The Dex.

In this episode of 1WD TV, Fred espouses on why Chilean wine is so diverse (hint: it’s due to geography, but probably not in the way that you’re thinking!). And he works in as many heavy metal references as possible.

Ready to get schooled? Have a view!

Cheers!
