Today we tell the tale of American Wine and booze through the eyes of those who became president. The story of how wine and alcohol influenced and was influenced by politics stretches back to the founding of Jamestown in what is now Virginia and continues to this day. Which presidents knew the most about wine? Who drank the most? What wine was behind helping to end the Cold War? Do any of Thomas Jefferson’s famous bottles still survive today? All of this and more will be told in today’s new podcast just in time for President’s Day. Guests include winemakers and staff at Château d’Yquem, Schramsberg Vineyards, Stone Tower Winery, and SOMM TV.
