Here’s an interesting story in the Baltimore Sun on the impact of the film, “Sideways“, on wineries and other businesses in the Santa Barbara wine country. This ties in nicely with my review from yesterday’s show.

This week’s show is all about Pinot Noir, featuring a wine lover’s review of the film, “Sideways“, and tasting three Pinots from California and Oregon:
– La Crema, Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2002 ($18)
– Erath, Oregon Pinot Noir 2002 ($15)
– Beringer Founders’ Estate Pinot Noir 2002 ($9)
On this week’s show I taste three Dolcetto from the Piedmonte region of Italy and showcase 2 podcasts.
– Stefano Farina, Dolcetto di Diano dÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢Alba 2001 ($9)
– Cantine Giacomo Ascheri, Dolcetto dÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢Alba Nirane 2002 ($13)
– Marchesi di Barolo, Madonna di Como, Dolcetto dÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢Alba 2003 ($16)
This morning I noticed that the first episode of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œGrape RadioÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚?, another podcast devoted to the world of wine, had been posted. I think this is great news for the category and for us wine lovers and encourage Winecast listeners to check their show out.
Best of luck, Brian, Leigh and Jay!

– Avelsbacher Hammerstein Kabinett 2001 from Weinbaudomaene Trier ($13)
