I am of course Interpreting Wine Host and Founder Lawrence Francis across three episodes exploring the terroir, geology, winemaking culture and wines of the US’s second largest quality wine producing region We conclude the series today with an in-depth look at Walla Walla with Matt Reynvaan of Reynvaan Family Vineyards. Building on episode 443 which looked at the wider Columbia Valley and 444 which focused on Yakima Valley. We first hear Matt’s origin story, a fascinating introduction to the wine industry, literally “from scratch” in 2004. He puts the family decision to start a new winemaking endeavour in a new region in the context of the help that they received along the way from the local and international winemaking communities. Before we embark on a podcast first, a 2017 syrah vertical, tasting In The Rocks, In the Hills and The Contender. Before Matt talks to the market for these wines and the loca and international response. Before finishing by looking ahead for both Walla Walla and the wider Washington State winemaking region.

Thanks! 👌👌 Welcome back to Part 2 of my first regional series of the year, the Washington State Wine Deep Dive 2021. I am of course Interpreting Wine Host and Founder Lawrence Francis. Across three episodes we will explore the terroir, geology, winemaking culture and wines of the US’s second largest quality wine producing region, which is regularly ranked among the world's top wine regions…  Guests are drawn from landmark producers in the Columbia valley, the Yakima valley and Walla Walla. Uniquely placed to translate the larger story that each glass of Washington State Wine represents. We continue the today with an in-depth look at the Yakima Valley in the capable hands of Kerry Shiels, second generation wine maker at Côte Bonneville based in Sunnyside, Washington State.   Kerry tells us her origin story, talk about the first generation of winemakers in the region, including pioneers Walter Clore and Wade Wolfe. Before we virtually explore geological influences that pre-date those which we explored in Part 1. We explore a regional point of differentiation with their vines planted on their own root stock and the impact it has. Before we taste three bottles produced in relatively tiny quantities each year and explore the winemaking influence. The 2019 DuBrul Vineyard Riesling with a production of around 200 cases, 2,400 bottles. 2013 Syrah, which is produced in similar amounts. And the 2012 Côte Bonneville Bordeaux Blend, of which around 500 cases, 6,000 bottles are produced each year. Kerry closes by looking outside of the Yakima Valley, discussing the opportunities to try these wines internationally. And looks ahead for the region in the short and medium term.   Intro and outro musicThe New Investorshttp://newinvestors.dk/Contact: glenn@velournet.dk Guest: Kerry Shiels, Côte Bonneville Date recorded: 20 January 2021 Listen and subscribe: www.interpretingwine.com  WASHINGTON STATE CONTACT https://www.washingtonwine.org/ https://twitter.com/Wa_State_Wine https://www.instagram.com/wa_state_wine https://www.facebook.com/WashingtonStateWine GUEST CONTACT  https://www.cotebonneville.com/ https://www.instagram.com/cotebonneville/ CONTACT INTERPRETINGWINE Instagram: https://www.interpretingwine.com/instagram Facebook: https://www.interpretingwine.com/facebook Twitter: https://www.interpretingwine.com/twitter Email: hello@interpretingwine.com   Washington State Wine Deep Dive 2021 SERIES DIRECT LINK www.interpretingwine.com/WASHINGTONSTATE2021

Today is unfortunately already the final day of the summit, but we’re going out in style with a look at the impact on retail during the pandemic. We start with former Interpreting Wine podcast guest James Dawson, Entrepreneur Founder of Humble Grape, a group of hybrid wine bars and stores in London.  He brings us up to date with the opening of Humble Grape’s fifth site in Canary Wharf last year and the immediate impact of the pandemic in March 2020. Right the way up to their recovery during August and the government's recent 6 person cap on groups in all hospitality venues. He talks about an experience based business and how this might differ from a retail based one. We talk potential legal recourse to the existing situation. Before he contrasts his experience of London, France and New York, rounds up the most successful innovations Humble Grape have implemented over lockdown. And looks ahead to how we recover from this situation.   Episode outline: Catch up Is retail the saviour?

Today is all about restaurants and we start with a long overdue visit to Tredwells to speak with Chef Owner Chantelle Nicholson. We first hear her origin story and transition from studying law into various roles in hospitality. Looking at her up to date ideas for what a restaurant can be, which has developed during lockdown. We talk about the circular economy and the passion that Chantelle has for supporting local producers. Chantelle takes us inside decisions she made at the start of lockdown and discusses how the team kept on the same page and communicated throughout. She discusses how they reopened and thoughts on keeping staff engaged throughout. Chantelle shares the triple whammy her part of Central London is suffering and how this contrasts with London neighbourhoods. What people learned about food during lockdown and how their buying habits may have changed for good. We talk no-shows and how the industry might start to change perceptions. Before she looks ahead to the end of furlough and beyond.

Thanks! 👌👌 Welcome to Day one Session two of the Interpreting Wine Hospitality Summit 2020. We continue with wine and pay a visit to Quality Wines Farringdon to meet Gus Gluck. Possibly my favourite place to drink wine in London, not least down to Gus’ warm welcome, wine selection and intimate atmosphere, he led innovation in response to COVID-19 and was the first person I saw using taster sizes for Instagram live tastings. Gus reflects on the days and weeks before lockdown, when the writing was increasingly on the wall about the severity of COVID. Before he brings us up to date and discusses how Quality Wines has adapted and continued to operate without losing its soul. He talks about the challenge of converting former retail customers back to eating in and paying the premium for service.

Thanks! 👌👌 Laure Patry Executive Head Sommelier for Jason Atherton (Social Company) is a former guest on Interpreting Wine, previously appearing in April 2018 in episode 66. She starts this conversation by bringing us up to speed with the last 29 months, the openings she’s been involved with and how her role has changed. I was then keen for her to describe the early days of the pandemic and how they mobilised as a team to first clost sites and ultimately make the most of the lockdown and the unexpected learning opportunities it presented. Laure describes how suppliers and producers embraced technology and were extremely generous in the face of uncertainty. She talks price and how the lockdown has educated customers and staff on the real cost of high quality ingredients.
