Winecast 21: Dave Falchek, Empty Bottles blog
If wine had more writers like Dave Falchek, more people would drink wine. He wants to make wine easier for consumers and he doesn’t suffer foolish wines or their producers – and he does this writing in Pennsylvania, which has some of most restrictive liquor laws in the country and where availability is often a joke.
Dave’s advice for wine drinkers: First, if you don’t like a wine, it doesn’t mean your taste buds are broken. Second, you’re not supposed to like a wine just because someone else does.
We talked about those things, as well as Dave’s work with the American Wine Society, which aims to make wine drinking easier; the state of regional wine, which Dave has supported since he started writing about wine; and whether Pennsylvania will eventually reform its antiquated liquor laws.
