Wine for Sophisticated Homies podcast

This is hardly a full length episode. Rather, this is merely an introspection. A research tangent. A dangling participle.

Some words mean many things. Some words deserve a little more attention than others.

And here we find 'Tannin' on the examination table.

Jolly Good.

Muscat is a grape that Jason talks about on this podcast. 

You are a person that downloads and listens to his tutelage. 

Tutelage is a funny word if you pronounce it like it's a French winemaking technique. 

All of these things are relevant. Why? The secrets are on Orion's Belt.

The Beqaa Valley, also known as the Bekaa Valley and, occasionally, The Phoenician Mother Lovin' Pimp Zone, just so happens to be the best spot for wine in all of the Middle East.  As long as you don't mind military struggles, religious infighting, and the occasional bunker buster or tank near your wine tasting room, then you should be ready to go. 

Listen to this podcast with some mezze and it'll be less falawful. Or just listen to it regardless. But. . .really listen. Not everyone makes wine in the safely golden hills of Napa. Some toil amidst the conflict. 

And so we toil to bring you their stories. So pop your Merwah and let's get to the learning. HEEYAHHH!

Macabeo, or Viura if ya nasty, is a handy little white grape from the North of Spain and the South of France.  Mostly. 

One-third of the 'Cava Girls Trio' (a Motown band made up of three wine grapes, they can't sing but man, what a concept, eh?!), this grape felt like it deserved its own stand-alone episode (we'll see).   

On this new dose of audio adrenaline (the experience you get from listening to W4SH, not the Christian band), Jason takes you into a dreamscape you didn't even know your psyche was developing all surrounding the Macabeo grape.  Enjoy this with ya homeboys.  Enjoy this with ya shady ladies.  Enjoy this with ya shnozzchompers (you know who they are).
