Interpreting Wine Podcast

Mar 10, 2023

I’m Lawrence Francis, Host of Interpreting Wine, welcoming you to the New York Grower 2023 Special Series. Across these 7 episodes recorded in Feb and Mar 2023 we’ll be exploring the modern New York Grower 2023 scene in the company of 6 producers. Including a Deep Dive into the New York Wine and Grape Foundations’ Sustainable Vineyard Certification. Absolutely reflecting the most up-to-date realities of grapegrowing in the region. Given the level of interest in my listeners and the wider wine trade in quality grapes as the basis for quality wines, a series I’m particularly excited to share and a real landmark for the channel.  Subscribe to be alerted when new series episodes go live.

We continue the New York Grower series 2023 today in the company of Mike Colizzi of Kashong Glen Vineyards
