Rank #2: Half-bottles, Restaurants, and the Meaning of Wine. Elizabeth Pressler of Elizabeth Spencer Winery: The Complete Interview

Podcast cover
Read more

My interview with Elizabeth Pressler of Elizabeth Spencer Winery was a pleasant wine conversation with a pleasant lady who makes very good wine.  What really makes this a turning point was that I asked her "What Does Wine Mean to You?"  It was a question I had asked of Dirk Richter and would soon become a motif in later interviews as well.  Enjoy!  Parts of this video were released as separate episodes of Understanding Wine with Austin Beeman and are collected here for the first time.

Rank #6: UW047 - On Oregon Pinot Noir. St Innocent Winemaker Mark Vlossak

Podcast cover
Read more

St. Innocent Winery's Founder and Winemaker Mark Vlossak was responsible for some of the most interesting wines that I tasted during my 2012 trip to Oregon.  The St. Innocent Pinot Noir Temperance Hill absolutely blew me away and the St Innocent Pinot Blanc made me think hard about the white wine potential of this region.

Mr. Vlossak was also one of the Willamette Valley's most eloquent supporters.  Winemaker Mark Vlossak is heavily involved in the yearly "Pinot Camp" educational week for industry professional.  This video, the first of five, gives you a taste of what he can teach us about Oregon Wine.

I interviewed Mr. Vlossak in the cellars at St. Innocent Winery.

This is Episode #47 of Understanding Wine with Austin Beeman.  There is more to come.

Rank #16: UW046 - Chehalem Winery. Wynne Peterson-Nedry Interview

Podcast cover
Read more

In the summer of 2012, I had the opportunity to sit down with Chehalem Winery's Wynne Peterson-Nedry.  It was a rare blast of hot weather in Oregon with temperatures rising into the high 90s.  It was a pleasure to stay in the shade and sip from the many dry white wines that are strongly featured in Chehalem's porfolio.

Chehalem Winery, a family operation, was transitioning from Father to Daughter as well as experiencing a dramatic change in their label design.  I spent about a half hour with Ms. Peterson-Nedry and the highlights of that interview form Episode #46 of Understanding Wine with Austin Beeman.

We spoke about the history of Chehalem Winery, where Oregon fits among world Pinot Noir regions, and why you should think about Riesling when you think Oregon Wines.
