08-05-17 Word On Wine Spitting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

Recently Kati and I took a trip to Sonoma and did some tasting.  Kati was nervous that if she spat or poured out the wine the wine makers would be insulted.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Mary and I discuss what is a very important part.
