    How about covering wines from Long Island? And, somewhat connected, it might be interesting to hear from someone at Banfi wines which has a winery in Tuscany, a vineyard and some office space on Long Island [though nowhere near the rest of the Long Island vineyards] and import a variety of other wines of diverse quality [Riunite, Concha y Toro].

    Hi Guys
    I would like to hear an episode on biodynamics vineyard management and winemaking.With the pro`s and con`s of this sort of system of making wines.
    Also an overview of the wines of chile would be good as well.
    Best Wishes

    I’ve really enjoyed the “history of” and “winemaker profile” shows you’ve done – Shafer, Mike Grgich, Bo and Heidi Barrett, etc. Would be great if you could do a few more – ex. evolution of Paso Robles, Turley, Jordan, etc.

    The first thing that came to mind for me was an interview with Paul Draper of Ridge Wines. After reading thru the comments posted already, I realise that I am not the only one hoping for such a show, but might I suggest that “majority rules”? I think that his vast experience would make for a very interesting interview. Lytton Springs and Monte Bello are truly classic wines, made from entirely different blends of grapes, to a fantastic level of quality.

    I will send an email to Ridge again for a request to interview Paul. I have not heard back from them on my previous attempt.  They have their own podcast, so maybe that has something to do with not getting a response.

    I would like to hear an interview with a hands-on importer,one who has some control over the way a wine is produced and aged. I think it would be interesting to explore the dynamic between the winegrower/winemaker and importer and their competing interests

    Not sure you haven’t done this, but what about a virtual tasting show with widely distributed wines that most listeners across the country have access to acquiring. Maybe something along the lines of Jancis’ book How To Taste.

    Within the category of wine travel:

    What makes a great tasting room experience?
    Conversely, what diminishes a tasting room visit and can that be avoided?
    Name names of the best tasting rooms.
    Does tasting room quality vary by region?
    Craziest tasting room visit anecdote.
    Most unusual or clever tasting room concept/experience.
