After a few great questions
from listeners, we have a celebrity guest: Grammar Girl, the best
selling author, award-winning podcaster, and brain behind Quickanddirtytips.com. She
answers dorky questions about wine grammar in her fun, brilliant
- What does it mean exactly when
someone says a wine is rustic?
- Have you found wine shopping
to be like fashion i.e.; certain items are a better bargain at
certain times of the year?
- Unless I have a specific meal
I am planning I tend to buy the same wine to drink and I go through
stages. Am I messing up my palate by having a standard that I
always go to?
- I sought out a Blaufränkisch
and I was really surprised by how sweet it was. Is this typical of
all Blaufränkisch , a Hungarian style, or just that
And then we get to the famous
Mignon Fogarty, AKA Grammar Girl! She answers three questions for
- Should wine types (Cabernet
Sauvignon, Merlot, etc) be capitalized in writing?
- Why are some wine types not
capitalized (champagne, sherry) by some wine writers?
- What's the deal with variety
Mignon is a great person,
brilliant, fun, and I'm thrilled we connected. Find her at:
