Urban Wineries

Green acres is the place to be; Farm living is the life for me?  Well, it’s true that rural settings are usually where you’ll find vineyards and wineries.  But, maybe it doesn’t have to be that way.  If you live in the city or the suburbs — how about making wine right there in your own neighborhood? 

Join us as we sit in with Michael Brill (CrushPad), Tracey Brandt (A Donkey and Goat), Sasha Verhage (Eno), and Andrew Vingiello (AP Vin), four urban winemakers from the Bay Area, to discuss how they got started, and the advantages and disadvantages of making their wines in the big city.

The Wines of Lebanon – Chateau Musar

Post this show to your favorite social network

Wine from where? is usually the first reaction to finding out there are vineyards and wineries in Lebanon.  Yet, viticulture was introduced to the Bekka Valley 6,000 years ago by the Phoenicians. 

Founded in 1930 by Gaston Hochar, Chateau Musar continues the tradition.  Join us as we speak with Serge Hochar about the geography, history and philosophy of Chateau Musar — and what it means to cultivate grapes and make wine in what can quickly become a war zone.
