First we hit on the Background on Roman Empire
Expansion of Wine
Golden Age of Wine
Viticulture in the Roman era
All in all, a dork-fest of an episode, but a very fun one indeed!
In Vino Veritas!

In this episode I have a fangirl moment with Jane Anson, one of the top wine writers in the world. She's the contributing editor and Bordeaux correspondent for Decanter Magazine,Decanter.com, and DecanterChina.com, among other publications, and author of the book "Bordeaux Legends," the story of the Premier Cru of Bordeaux.
In the show we talk about:
1. Jane's background, how she traveled the world and how she wound up as a journalist for one of the foremost wine magazines in the world.
2. The future of wine media
3. Jane's book "Bordeaux Legends" and her other books
4. Bordeaux -- her impressions of the region, its classification systems and the state of affairs on the left and right banks.
5. We wrap with a discussion of Jane's favorite places in Bordeaux (from a wine and non-wine standpoint).
A fantastic conversation and hopefully the first of many (I begged her to come on again and she said yes!)
You can find Jane @newbordeaux on Twitter and on her site www.newbordeaux.com.
