November 13th 2013 | Tasting Room Radio - Interview with Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo


We’re talking Rutherford Dust and the new Lake Sonoma label with wine partners Dan Zepponi (Napa) and Tony Stewart (Okanagan).

 Imagine being the Cellar Master at 240 yr old Veuve Clicquot. That’s the life of Dominique Demarville. He says Madame Clicquot is still in those cellars.

Richard Parsons has run Time Warner, General Counsel for  the White House and many more. His wine mentor was Nelson Rockefeller.

His motto?  We drink all the wine we can and sell the rest!!

Jim Cuddy from Blue Rodeo plays through the West for Gold Medal Plates. We talk about raising funds for Olympians  and why he’s all over Spanish Wines.

Martha Wainwright was a guest on Mulligan Stew last week. After we got through the music talk we discovered a mutual love for wine. Go figure!

And the Wine Diva returns with her take on this year’s Vines Magazine/ Intervin Wine Awards.

Who won best of show and the Gold medal winners from BC.
