Chris Waters (Globe and Mail) interviews Jason Priestley. Michal Mosny and TDM
What started out as a Zoom interview for a story Christopher Waters was writing on Q&A Wine for his Easter Globe and Mail wine column has now become a Tasting Room Radio show, a Podcast and video interview for TDM YouTube Channel.
Full Disclosure :
Q&A wine is a new partnership in the South Okanagan between myself, Jason and Winemakers Cut winemaker/owner Michal Mosny.
How this came to be is a wonderful story that starts the interview.
Make no mistake… this interview is lead by Chris Waters.
As someone who has done countless interviews, it was such a treat to watch someone else carry the load and just enjoy the conversation. The surprise in the dialogue were the outflow of words, opinions and thoughts from Chris, who was completely open and engaging.
I kept thinking “this would be a really good TRR and podcast”
So. Here we are. With the help of Olivia Siu and Chris himself, this weeks Tasting Room Radio is a friendly war of words about the wines of Canada, BC’s place in wine, Michal’s and Martina’s story of moving from Slovakia to Oliver BC and starting Winemakers Cut, Chris’s thoughts on Q&A Red and the just arriving Q&A RMV White , about wines that pleasantly surprise and Pink Floyd.
The Red is a blend of 45/Cab 38/Merlot 13/Cab Franc 4/Petit Verdot
The White RMV a blend of 58/Rousanne 34/Marsanne 8/Viognier
Christopher was kind enough to award the Q&A Red Blend 91 Points and the Q&A White Blend 92 Points
