    Hi guys

    You know I am a big fan of graperadio as I have been following your podcast blog since it started.Just one thing.You said in the introduction that the speaker made the seminar good but basic.That is how it is meant to be guys.Burgundy is already hard to understand and a good educator or speaker makes it simple to understand and that’s what this guy did.I loved the podcast.

    Hi Roland,

    Man, you are preaching to the choir! I too loved it. I think Don Kinnan made the whole complex region terrifically accessible.

    I was sitting next to Rusty at this seminar, and I’m sure for him it was kind of basic. But, it was very much needed for me. In fact, it launched me on a huge Burgundy expedition…dammit! I’d avoided it until now, but once the hook was set, it was game was over.
