Hey – our first piece of publicity! Brian Mast of Waits-Mast Family Cellars was interviewed on Vin Village Radio yesterday. To listen to the 10-minute interview, go here. As a PR guy by day, I knew to be prepared with my Q&A and talking points, but the interviewer, Lynn Krielow Chamberlain, had some good, probing questions that I didn’t expect. So, basically, I tossed out the talking points and had fun talking about the good old days in the Midwest drinking my dad’s beer and the foul taste of wine coolers in college.

If you went to the movie Bottle Shock, listen in earlier as I believe they are interviewing Steven Spurrier (played brilliantly by Alan Rickman in the movie) to get the real scoop on what happened at the Judgement of Paris.

The radio show is also archived on iTunes radio, Live 365 and on Lynn’s own site Enjoy!

Bottle Shock does not tell the real scoop about the Paris Tasting: the most notable is it tries to portray Jim Barrett and his son, Bo, as poor, overworked winemakers when actually Jim was a successful attorney from Southern California who flew up to Napa on the weekends in his private plane to see how things were going and Bo was just out of high school. Mike Grgich was the winemaker and when he left Chateau Montelena to start his own winery with Austin Hills, the Barrettes have tried to rewrite history and pretend that he never existed. The movie also does not even mention Stag’s Leap Wine Cellar won the red wine tasting in the afternoon (except for a note at the end of the movie).
