I enjoy cooking with wine,

sometimes I even put it in the food.

I have one wine rule: drink what you like with food that you like.  This really is two rules: drink wine you enjoy, and pair it properly with food you enjoy.  This requires knowledge of some basic wine and food pairing principles; but you could just stick with this one: like goes with like.

But if all of this wine talk is just too confusing and you refuse to drink anything but the sweetest sauternes or can’t abide a merlot or just drink whatever is on sale that week, then just keep drinking what you like.  Because wine is meant to be drunk.

Me, I want to learn more.  I want to tour France and camp out in wineries and have the grand cru champagne that is ~ $15/bottle.  I want to visit Napa and Sanoma and the Finger Lakes.  I want to find cross the Andes from Argentina to Chile to taste the difference.

And luckily, Public Television is here to help:


Vine Talk is a new show hosted by Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada and Julie & Julia) which brings together an actor/actress, another famous person, and a NY chef to discuss wine and the food that goes with it.

So watch, support your local Public Television and learn something about wine in the process.
