It was a dark and stormy night when she walked in, some Italian girl with all sorts of grapes in her eyes...

So begins our first wine review.  Other podcasts just review wine.  We review wine with panache.  Our first victim?  Villa Artimino, Carmignano Vigna Grumarello, DOCG Tuscan blend.  But rather than just review the wine, we incorporate the review into a Film Noir style drama, complete with bad music and crappy acting.  

You're welcome're welcome.

Ben gave this wine 7 out of 10 Top Hats, I gave it 5, for a grand total of 6 Top Hats on the Wine For Sophisticated Homies Review Scale.  Check it out and tell us if you agree.......Ya lousy animals'.

Sophistication?  Boom.  Riesling.  Minerals are WAY sophisticated.  Homies and Riesling go together like............homies and Riesling.  

Take this with you to the club.  Drink it in the jacuzzi.  Give it out at baby showers.  Pair it with your Homie food.  Age it and drink it at the gas station so that your petrol is paired with your literal gas (that's all Ben, Jason does not recommend that last thing).

In this Episode, Sommeliers Jason Booth and Ben Draper get real on the world of wine in China.  What are they buying, what are they making, and where can a homie find some wine at a moments notice.  

We're about to open up your eyes on some stuff you didn't even know about.  So get ready to learn about the Chinese wine industry.  Also, we apologize in advance for any offensive remarks Ben might make.  He thinks we're going to be talking about fancy dishware so I think we should be okay.  But he's also currently dressing up his decanter to look like Chairman Mao, so...we'll see.

"Oh No!  All of my dry wine from dinner is gone, What the flip am I gonna to do now?" Said the Homey who didn't know about dessert wines.  Dessert wines offer you a little slice of sacchariferous nectar to end your night.  You can pair them with everything or just drink them on their own.  Plus, look at how gigantic your hand will look holdin' that tiny glass!  Only a true homey would have gigantic hands.  Boom, impress everyone with your hand size.  Also, learn a little bit about how dessert wines are made, where they come from, and why you should drink them.  

If you don't like dessert wines, you need to expand your horizons.  If you don't have horizons, you should move away from smoggy city you live in Homey! Horizons are dang beautiful!  Learn yo'self on these dessert wines and be a better person.  Or don't!  But don't give us any attitude about the decisions you make in life.
