0:00 – 15:31: Ryan drank the Louis Latour “Bourgogne Gamay” 2013 from France (about $23), which provided an excuse to explore this variety. For those who also want to explore Gamay, Rod recommends trying an Okanagan option from producers such as Beaumont Family Estate Winery or Volcanic Hills Winery, both in the Kelowna area. Both should be $20 or under.
15:31 – 31:58: Catching up on good wines Rod has tried. We start with the Family Perrin “Cote du Rhone” 2014 for $16. Then we get into Cono Sur from Chile and their “Viento Mar” Block No. 21 Single Vineyard Pinot Noir. Lot’s to get into here.
31:58 – 36:19: Booze in the news — how B.C. wine on grocery store shelves made national and international news… as a NAFTA trade irritant.
36:19 – 38:19: Speaking of Cono Sur from Chile, the pick of the week is their Pinot Noir Rose in a 1-litre bottle.
