Wine Safari with Foodista

My good friends at Foodista, Barnaby (auteur) and Andrea (charming co-star), put together a great little video tour of Esquin and were kind enough to let yours truly be the guide.

On our “wine safari” I help Andrea navigate the dizzying array of wine selections and give her some tips on how to find great wines in the face of unfamiliar names and labels. In the new year we hope to be working on some more videos focused on a single topic such as region, style, or varietal. (There also needs to be some rigorous work on my part to expunge “um’s” and “you know’s” from my on-camera work; it’s all a bit nerve-wracking!)

I’ll also be a bit more contentious, controversial, and contrarian. Because it’s who I am.

So is there any wine topic you’d like to see us potentially cover in 2011? Suggestions welcome!

  1. here’s my two cents: cut the video to 30 or 60 second spots, focus on a region, type, price point, food pairing or any other common denominator and you’ll probably have a winner on your hands. Just speaking for myself, when I see a vid like this I want an easy takeaway – like “I should check out the Spanish Grenache”. Oh yeah, and if you can add a little chiron that spells the damn thing, that would be groovy.

    Hey, I bought this crazy-assed wine I was reading about in Esquire – we’ll have to see what it’s all about: http://www.esquire.com/features/brightest-2010/abe-schoener-1210

    1. Jam Jar is the undisputed king of $10 sweet South African Shiraz. In all honesty, I think it’s very tasty. We were talking about sweet red wines (which is something I get asked about more than I would imagine) but that got left on the cutting room floor.
