    The James Beard Foundation is just verifying what I have known for the last 2 years. GrapeRadio Rocks!!!

    It is a terrific wine education program. There are many other wine podcast out there but they simply do not measure up.

    Thanks again for all the hard work and good luck with the award.

    When you guys started out I would have never thought things would have turned out this well. Your podcast and now video podcast have exceeded all that I would have ever guessed. Keep up the good work.

    I am hooked now so you can’t stop.

    Thanks again. Jonathan N.

    I knew that the James Beard Society gave out awards for the best resturants in the US but I had no idea that you could win them for other categories. Greeat job. Keep the wine talk and podcast coming. L

    I enjoy reading many of James Beard’s books (the introductions are as good as the recipies) and often it includes suggested pairings – so they are carrying the flame by including wine appreciation and recognizing Grape Radio’s excellance in wine educational.

    Jim Beard was the Alton Brown of his times – now if we could have Alton do a wine show we could see if he is the Jim Beard of our times.

    If not, I’d be more than happy to share a glass with Mario Batali based on what I read in the recent book “Heat”.
