Wine Expert Kurtis Kolt has taken over Tasting Room Radio.
First he presents a gaggle of small BC wine producers who make wine for the same people who want to know where their food comes from.
Then KK joins up with fellow wine educators DJ Kearney and Rhys Pender to salute World Malbec Wine Day.. A master class in all things Malbec!!
One of the trends in wine these days is that the same people who want to know where and how their food is grown also want to know where and how their wines are grown.Kurtis Kolt rounded up some of his favourite BC farmers to pour last week at Wildebeest in Vancouver.
Here’s the line up….
