Interviews with Terry Theise

And finally, a poor quality video but a TON of great info … an interview with the amazing former wine importer Terry Theise, who basically taught me everything I know about Riesling and German wine. Please, take the time to watch this interview. Terry is one of the best, and his books are must reads. He talks about Riesling for the first 1/3, but continues about Grower Champagne for the rest (still fascinating).

The way Terry talks about Riesling is like a wine love letter.

And one more interview … a more current interview with Karen McNeil, author of The Wine Bible.
