The Wine Geese: Part Three

The third part of The Wine Geese radio documentary is on Lyric FM tomorrow morning at 8.30am. In this show, Tomas Clancy meets the far-seeing Francis Mahoney, devotee of Pinot Noir and the man who pioneered it in California 35 years ago. You can read more about Mahoney here and the programme will be online after broadcast on the Lyric FM Features page.

At the moment, just in case you missed it last week, you can listen to part two of the series on that page, with Jim Concannon of the Livermore Valley in Southern California and Jim Barrett, the man whose Chateau Montelena chardonay topped the blind tastings in the 1976 Judgement of Paris. That tasting – fictionalised and filmed as 2007’s Bottle Shock – put Californian wine firmly on the map.
