Your weekly connection to the people, places and products that make wine so much fun!
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.
Grape Encounters is an audio guide to special wine-related discoveries and memorable experiences that airs each week on radio stations across the United States , reaching wine lovers from coast to coast. But, that’s just the beginning. Grape Encounters can also be heard worldwide from our website and can be downloaded for free from the iTunes Music Store. Grape Encounters provides an opportunity to point listeners to wineries, tasting rooms, restaurants and other establishments that are certain to leave a lasting impression.
