ReMARKable Palate Podcast #65

ReMARKable Palate #65: The Wines of Rioja, Part 1

Today, we visit 3 of the most notable wineries in Rioja: Muga, López de Heredia and Marqués de Cáceres, and learn a bit about the process of winemaking. Juan Muga of Muga explains the process of fining, filtering the wine using egg whites, and takes us into the cooperage, explaining the the art of barrel making. Maria José Lopez de Heredia explains the heritage of Viña Tondonia, founded by her great grandfather. We also get a tasting session with Christina Forner of Marqués de Cáceres, who explains the reasoning behind their wines.,,

Also, Jennifer and I share some Thanksgiving entertaining tips, and we hear from Pepper, one of our Gilded Fork Kitchen Elves.
