Sweeter Than Wine (Episode #102)

Wine is quickly becoming a part of the U.S. lifestyle. In fact, all 50 states now have bonded wineries. Wine represents the search for roots and traditions that are often amiss in American culture. Denise talks with Peter Marks, Master of Wine and Wine Educator, about the rising presence of wine in American culture. Winemakers Sarah Quider and Aimee Sunseri speak about the special role of women in winemaking, and they reflect on their own involvement in the wine business. Denise and Napa artist and children's writer Jessel Miller discuss the symbolic relationship between wine and aesthetic beauty, while Claudia Sansone, television culinary artist to celebrity chefs, describes the wine country lifestyle and the people who live and love it.
