Swirl, Sniff, Sip: Tasting and Studying Wine

In the first show of the SwirlSniffSip series, host and sommelier Jessica Fleming gets down to the basics of both wine tasting and wine education.  Our table consists of wine industry professionals that have dedicated their professional (and likely personal) lives to this bucolic beverage.  We discuss the questions:  Why study wine?  And how do you go about it?  We look both at the individual reasons for pursuing wine with fanatic intellectual analysis as well as the physiology behind tasting (and smelling) as well as tips for making the most educational experience out of your wine exploration. Everyone knows how to drink…we’re here to think about what we drink!

GUESTS:  Mark Pope (Southern Wine & Spirits); Mandy Jordan (Orangewood Wines)
