There was a time, not long ago, when wine tasting was regarded as something done by people with specially trained palates and sophisticated sensibilities. Today, wine is being consumed by hundreds of millions of people who drink it simply because it is what they like. Grape Encounters is about the colorful people, the places, the ambiance and the passion that makes wine drinking one of the world’s most popular pastimes. Grape Encounters is lighthearted, interactive and a very good time– taking listeners out of the studio and into places you won’t see on a winery tour.
The Central Coast of California is the home of Grape Encounters Radio. This exciting region provides endless content for the show, but we enthusiastically take listeners to the four corners of the world on a regular basis.
