These are strange days indeed, and the strangeness has not eluded the wine business. In this episode, we pour some Gracianna Rosé and take a look at the “State of The Wine Union,” examining the startling developments both in the wine biz and the world at large and how the two affect one another. Friend of The Pod and Master Sommelier Candidate Kat Thomas joins us to give insight into the recent shake-up at the Court of Sommeliers and why it’s important to everything from the wine in your glass to the cause of social justice. But worry not: with a hearty glass of the 2019 Gracianna Winery “Arozza” Russian River Valley Rosé – with its 15.4% alcohol – things can’t possibly get too heavy.
