Wine And Mother’s Day: A Conversation With My Mom

Posted on: May 3rd, 2015 by

Happy Mother’s Day! In honor of this upcoming holiday and to celebrate mothers all over the world, I invited my Mom to be a guest on the podcast. Have a listen:

So what will you encounter this episode? Excellent question. Among other things:

  • Two wines that begin with “M” that my Mom was most familiar with as a young adult
  • Shifting gears completely, a wine that begins with “I”
  • Her “a-ha” wine moment at Chicago’s Blackbird
  • A shocking accusation concerning why I wanted my parents to explore wine
  • Was wine in my DNA?
  • A talk about wine destinations in California and the world (FYI, my Mom and I have travelled together to Napa, Sonoma, Argentina, Chile, Australia, and New Zealand)
  • A super-cool island of wine my Mom has been to but I haven’t (NBD)
  • What she thinks of the lighter-style reds I love
  • Remembering a fantastic, inexpensive, cool restauarant in Buenos Aires (Juana M)

Here’s a photo my Mom took of me at Joseph Phelps (duh) in Napa:
