August 8th - "It's All Greek to Me!"
We can thank the ancient Greeks for introducing Vitis vinifera to the rest of Europe, but what about the wine world today? Greek wines have faded to the background, but there is a resurgence in quality with international and indigenous varieties. We take a look into some of these varieties and showcase why these wines deserve a spot in the conversation of fine wine.

August 22nd - "¡Viva España!"

Along the way we will be showcasing the highlights of this emergent wine region and look into the future of what one can expect from the wines from this country.
