How To Be a Better Wine Lover

Wine Blast with Susie and Peter

Self-improvement - via a wine glass. With a side helping of 'vinous Kama Sutra'. But we're getting ahead of ourselves...In our last episode we explored what we wine lovers want from the year ahead. In this programme we flip the camera round and take a look how we can be better wine lovers.Suggestions like 'drink better' inevitably crop up. But so do more thought-provoking tips such as, 'Pair food with wine, not the reverse,' 'Give a bottle of wine that we love to someone who isn't expecting it,' and 'Listen. Encourage. Celebrate.'Supporting climate action is high on the agenda. 'Drink only wines from sustainable farming,' is one view, another is: 'Take a stand against wine in overly heavy bottles!'Firm opinions are expressed on everything from shopping local to keeping an open mind (to other people's views as well as to unfamiliar wine styles), trusting your own palate, being humble, supporting small producers and retailers, pouring Pinot Gris down the sink, giving new things a go - and putting wine on the table not a pedestal.In short, this is a largely heart-warming, occasionally challenging, certainly thought-provoking episode that will hopefully get us thinking about what it is to be a wine lover, and how we can each get the most out of this glorious liquid. Into this engaging mix are thrown the usual hodge-podge of random elements, from lobster mac'n'cheese to 'Naked on Roller-Skates' and artificial intelligence holding forth on 'wine tasting in the style of the Kama Sutra'. You've been warned.We pair this zesty wine chat with a couple of special bottles to tie in with the discussion:Ata Rangi Lismore Pinot Gris 2009, Martinborough, New ZealandRidgeview Sparkling Red Pinot Noir NV, Sussex, EnglandBride Valley Pinot Noir 2018, Dorset, EnglandThanks to wine writer Libby Brodie, Master of Wine Peter McCombie and Master Sommelier Gearoid Devaney - as well as a host of wine lovers all around the world - for sharing their views for this episode.

So what do we all want from wine in the year ahead? What's top of our wish list for wine in 2023?For some it's drinking better (or simply more) wine. If possible, for less money. Others are hoping Pinot Noir proves to be a miracle cure and will be prescribed by doctors...More realistically, combating climate change, responsible political engagement with wine and an end to the war in Ukraine inevitably feature. And what of no-alcohol wine? The rise of organic and biodynamic viticulture? The quest for fresher wines, with moderate alcohol? Greater diversity and inclusivity in wine? Wine in cans? The growth of English wine? A return to travel? Wines with 'added value' (and less marketing nonsense)? And supporting independent wine merchants?In this frank, opinionated episode, we take in a whole host of views from around the world and also hear from Master Sommelier Gearoid Devaney, wine writer Libby Brodie and Master of Wine Peter McCombie, among others.Somehow, we also touch on poor taste in jumpers, serendipity, Damp January, the wine fountain of Irache, undies and their openings - and algorithms.This episode paves the way for the subsequent programme entitled: How to Be a Better Wine Lover.All details from this episode (including links we mentioned) are on our website: Show notes for Wine Blast S4 E9 - The Year Ahead: A Wine Lover's Wish ListWe'd love to hear what you want from the year ahead, or how to be a better wine lover (or indeed to receive any pics of 'cool' wine jumpers) - do get in touch via Instagram or Twitter.

Are you curious about California wine, especially the differences between the various regions? What big trends have changed the California wines you drink for the past 5 years? What would surprise you most about the Napa wine region? In this episode of the Unreserved Wine Talk podcast, I'm chatting with Chuck Cramer, host of On The Road With Mr CA Wine.   You can find the wines we discussed at https://www.nataliemaclean.com/winepicks   Highlights What was it like for Chuck to do stand-up comedy for the first time in London?

Why Chuck did start his podcast, On The Road With Mr CA Wine? How did Chuck integrate a signature California vibe into his podcast? What's behind the huge value and opportunity created by having a podcast? What do you need to know about the California wine industry? Which California wine regions should you be aware of? Which California wine trends have emerged over the last 5-10 years?   Key Takeaways California has an incredible number of wine regions that exhibit a diverse range of climates and soils. Several big trends, such as more regional specificity and lower alcohol wines, among others, have changed the California wines we drink over the past 5 years.

Which new and emerging wine regions should be on your radar to try soon? Why should you pay more for wine? How does glassware change the taste of your wine?   In this episode of the Unreserved Wine Talk podcast, I'm chatting with Karen MacNeil, author of The Wine Bible.   You can find the wines we discussed at https://www.nataliemaclean.com/winepicks   Giveaway Three of you who are based in the U.S. are going to win a personally signed copy of Karen MacNeil's terrific new book, The Wine Bible.   How to Win To qualify, all you have to do is email me at natalie@nataliemaclean.com and tell me that you'd like to win the book. I'll select the winners randomly from those who participate. Good luck!   Highlights Which new regions and eras did Karen include in this new edition of The Wine Bible, and why? After the first edition, what important lesson did Karen take away about planning her writing? Why was Greece the most difficult region for Karen to research? How did shipping restrictions make it almost impossible for Karen to sample Canadian wines? What tragic outcome awaits Vitis vinifera if climate change continues on its current trajectory? What can we do as wine buyers to help mitigate the impact of climate change? Why should you pay more for wine? Which historic food and wine pairings did Karen discover? What's Karen's favourite weird wine and food pairing? Why did Karen create her Flavor First™ Wine Glasses? Which controversial take does Karen have on wine glasses and food pairing? Why does Karen have a glass of Champagne every night? How does Karen ensure she's drinking and tasting mindfully? Which political figures would Karen love to share a bottle of wine with?   Key Takeaways I love the new and emerging wine regions Karen puts on your radar to try, like sparkling wine from England. She makes a great case for paying more for wine, especially when you do an apples-to-apples comparison between the cost of that overpriced latte and a glass of wine. She's right that we can't want to drink super inexpensively and want our wine to be organic, biodynamic, and as natural as it can be at the same time. It doesn't compute financially. I'm intrigued to try her line of glassware based on flavour rather than grape.   Join me on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube Live Join the live-stream video of this conversation on Wed at 7 pm ET on Instagram Live Video, Facebook Live Video or YouTube Live Video.

What's the secret to putting together the perfect wine flight? What's it like to work at the prestigious Wine Spectator magazine? What does it take to go from tasting coordinator to a reviewer at Wine Spectator? How did Aleks hone his wine-tasting skills before he became a reviewer? Which aspects of the vineyards make Premier Cru different from Grand Cru? What was the reaction from the wine industry once Aleks was the lead reviewer for several wine regions? Why did Aleks leave Wine Spectator to become a fine wine specialist at Sotheby's? What did Aleks look for when examining high-end wine collections as a fine wine inspector?
