Châteauneuf du Pape – Ask the Wine Maker #5

Welcome to our video podcast: Châteauneuf du Pape – Ask the Wine Maker – Video Show #87.

On his recent trip to the Chateauneuf-Du-Pape, Robert Kenney was able to ask several well-known winemakers our last big question: “Why do you produce a Special Cuvee” — Film editing by Robert Farinhas.
