Hello Jimmy Carter 2.0: Pelosi Wants to Regulate Gas Prices

"Turning to another person who needs two channel George Costanza, that would be Nancy Pelosi. Speaker of the House, saying, in her weekly address, that she intends to introduce legislation that would allow Biden to set gas prices. Are we going back to the 70s? I mean, Jimmy Carter, where are you? What we're going to ration? Gas? We're going to set prices. That's your answer to this energy crisis? It's worth just taking a little teeny moment and having a little econ one O one session with all of these lawmakers because they don't seem to understand that supply and demand are correlated. And the pricing and incentives are also correlated. So if prices are capped, do you think anybody wants to be in this industry? Do you think businesses are going to want to drill more, knowing that they can't make more? Depending on whatever the price should be in the open market for oil? No. Of course they don't. And so it means you're not going to have enough supply, which is going to keep prices consistently high. OPEC knows this. OPEC chooses not. To pump more oil because it wants to keep prices high. So we're going to say, okay, we're going to cap prices, which is actually going to disincentivize corporations from wine to be in this business. And we think that's going to be the answer.

Dinesh Examines the Significance of J.D. Vance for the GOP's Future

"There's an article about JD Vance, JD Vance, the author of the book hillbilly allergies, very good book, very moving book. Who is now running in Ohio for the Senate endorsed by Trump and JD events have become kind of a liberal celebrity after hillbilly allergies. In part because he described and kind of riveting autobiographical detail is sort of hard Scrabble origins, the very dysfunctional family life, his grandmother, setting his grandfather on fire. I mean, crazy stuff like that, boring alcohol all over him and lighting a match. And all of this is in the book. It's no wonder the book was a massive bestseller. But I'll let you in a lot of liberals and journalists would say this is actually helps us understand the Trump phenomenon. The fact that working class people very often people who are struggling or poor, they're not behaving the way they did under FDR, under FDR, the kind of white working class could be counted on to vote for the Democrats. That was actually FDR's base. But now these guys a lot of them moving over to the Republicans and they're particularly enthusiastic about Trump. And yet, and yet, initially, JD Vance was very critical of Trump. And in fact, saw Trump as somebody who was, you may almost say taking advantage of this group rather than truly reflecting its values. And of course, the left love this, they were like, here's the guy who's come from that background. Here is the true you may say, descendant of hillbillies. Now, of course, JD Vance is not himself a hillbilly. Here is a guy who went to Yale, Yale law school, and has worked for big financial corporations and he's made a big success of his life and even though in the book he amusingly describes how he, you know, the first time they asked him whether he wanted a chablis or whether he wanted solving you on blankey, he didn't really know what they were talking about. He thought that there were just two kinds of wine, one is white and the other is red and the idea that there was sort of nuances or options within white and within red, he thought this was some kind of a joke. So this is all very amusingly portrayed in the book, but JD Vance, I'm sure today has a favorite Cabernet and possibly a favorite Pinot Noir. But nevertheless, the left was able to say, look, this guy who kind of knows the white working class is understands them and knows the Trump is a fraud. Well, as it turns out, by 2020, JD events became a defender of Trump, voted for Trump, endorsed Trump. And now Trump has endorsed him, and as far as I can see, Trump Junior, Don Junior is on the road campaigning for JD Vance. And some of the other candidates, by the way, are, you know, obviously very grumpy about this, JD Vance has surged into the first place. In the, in the Senate campaign.

How Much Infuence Does Trump Have Left?

"So Chris Christie was on ABC yesterday. He said, Trump's influence is weighing. He pointed out the incumbent governors. He's against we're going to win. Like that wine is going to win handily. It doesn't matter. And the RGA led by Doug ducey who's no friend of Trump is out there funding a bunch of people. But Ted Budd is going to win in North Carolina and Christie got that wrong. Chris is just wrong about that. Ted Budd has got quite the significant advance over Rory. So I don't think you can say Trump's influence is waning. It's just sometimes he spends it badly. I will take a middle ground there and say that his influence is waning and he sometimes spends it better. I think that I think that if you look at a state like Georgia, it seems as if it seems as if the incumbent governor is going to win. Brian Kemp seems to be doing pretty well. I mean, listen, I actually, we don't spend a ton of time on Trump and punchbowl news, which is not our not our area of expertise, but if you look at a low books in Alabama is falling behind, Trump pads his endorsement record by endorsing candidates that either are definitely going to win or do not even have a primary opponent. He did that in Texas. Many of the people he endorsed were going to win either way. So I think that I agree with you that some of these candidates are falling flat.

We Need to Get Serious About Sanctions... and So Does Europe

"Know, if you go back to the war between France and Spain and the UK, in 1701, guess what? They were still importing Bordeaux wine into the UK, even though the UK was at war. With France and they were doing this by just sending it to Spain and slapping stickers on the bottles, right? And then shipping them in Spanish casks and pretending that the bourdeaux wine came from Spain. I mean, this is what happens. In Venezuela today, I have sources that tell me the ships are going to the Caribbean. They change the paperwork and the flags, in the Caribbean, and then they send the ships on to Singapore where the paperwork gets changed again. The flags get changed again and then eventually it makes its way to China. In other words, there's all these workarounds. And there's a whole bunch of middlemen in the process, and so that's the problem. If we're going to get serious about sanctions, we need to put them all in there and then we need to actually enforce them and we need to do that in conjunction by the way with the EU, which is still getting its natural gas from Europe, like that makes sense. You know, look, I get it. It's going to be painful. And we all need to recognize that. I mean, it's going to be very painful for Europe, which in turn is painful for us because they are a major trading partner with us. And they're going to have to face the fact that they relied on Russia stupidly, frankly, that was completely naive for their natural gas 45% of their supply. That's going to change. What does it do? It shoots natural gas prices higher. And they rely on natural gas. And it shoots energy prices across the board higher, which means more and more inflation in Europe, more and more inflation back here at home, less trade, et cetera. You understand, like this is a domino effect, and it's really just so darn unfortunate because we knew what Putin was capable of. We knew it from Aleppo. In Syria, we knew it from Chechnya, and somehow people are just waking up to how bad he really is and what's really happening.

In Latest Gaffe, Biden Eats Before Troops Are Fed

"We have in studio one of our newest Friends former cabinet member of the Trump administration served in the United States Air Force in the naval intelligence of the United States and rose to veterans affairs secretary. Secretary wilkie, and of course now the newest national security senior correspondent or contributed to newsmax. So let's just number them. Number one, he said that we should use chemical weapons against Russia, which is illegal. He said to the 82nd airborne, you're going to see soon yourselves in Ukraine. And then he said, that man has to go, we have to get rid of Putin. All of those had to be pulled back had to be deleted, had to be winding out by The White House. And then, as a man who served this nation in the uniforms of two different services, can you explain why it's so important that whether you're a second lieutenant or the president, you don't eat before the troops have eaten, and he did that. No. In fact, that is the key to any great military leader. You see that your troops offended you see that they are bedded down. The greatest I think of all British officers was field marshal slim. And there's a great story there were two members of the House of lords who are lieutenant colonels. In Burma, it was the monsoon season, their troops were out, on the ground, pouring rain, mud, they were sipping wine and sherry in their tents with a heater. They were private that evening. If I can't slim, master them down to PFCs. Yes, two lords. That's how important that

What Gives Meaning to Tucker Carlson's Life? The Answer Is So Simple

"You did a monologue where at the end you said people are devoid of purpose and used word meaning, reminded me of Victor frankel's book man search for meaning where the best books are. Yeah. Where there's three different types of wills that he will the power, very Nietzsche and will the pleasure and then will to meaning. Right, what gives your life meaning? My life? Yeah. Oh well, my family. I mean, it's not even a not even. No, it's obvious. But it's close, but we have a generation that's told don't do that. Yeah. I mean, that's the biggest lie. We're at Citibank. You could be a vice president. Really, what happens then? What do I get? Tats. A wine problem, solitude. I mean, it's like the biggest lie ever. Work at Citibank. You know, really, what? No, you shouldn't have kids. Wait, you should really do is like get a promotion. Okay. And then what happens? Oh, I'm a corporate cog working for a creepy multinational publicly on company doesn't care about me at all. So what do I have? Let me just see nothing. Nothing. No, I'm not again. I just want to be super clear. It's easier for me to say this because I'm not poor. But I'm being as honest as I can be when I say the threshold for happiness is getting rid of debt, getting rid of worry. You don't want to worry about money that materially. Yes. That will make you unhappy. I've been there. So I'm not like when these people are like, oh, money doesn't matter. That's very eastern. Like, oh, it's just all, you know, that's a total lock. No, I know, but I've been in debt. That's the other extreme telling my wife what our credit card Bill was into tears, so that's unhappy. And people are living that. And I deeply sympathize empathize. But I'm just telling you when the other end of it, the threshold is paying off your debt and not worrying. Above that, it's only trinkets. And I mean that. And I mean that. And I've lived it. So you really have to have something that matters. I mean, how are you passing your genes on, by the way? This is like, I guess you're not allowed to say that or something. The only things that matter are the things that eternally matter, and I'm not just speaking about what happens after you die, though, that's like one of the big questions. How are your kids? Are they going to get married and reproduce so that your family continues after you die? And then what happens after you die? So those are the questions. Okay, those are the most basic questions that every civilization has. Fixated on because they're obvious to right in front of your face like this ends people die your eldest or your parents die like, oh, people die, this ends. Wow, that happens. You're like, and then what? If you can't even have a conversation about that, then you're an idiot.

But guess what allowed in county judge, this is breaking in the last 24 hours, finds boy in a skirt, guilty of raping, female student and girls bathroom remember we talked about the story, and the media told us that this wasn't true. The victims have been vindicated, and their parents demand apology and kids walk out of their classroom and protest against schools. This couldn't be happening at a worse time for Terry mcauliffe. This is hit a apex where all of a sudden, in Virginia. And let me just reemphasize this. I said this yesterday. Virginia, this is the ruling class governorship. This is the place where you wine and dine Boeing and north of Grumman and Lockheed Martin, where you give money to Pfizer AstraZeneca and Moderna. This is the governor of Virginia is kind of a ribbon cutting deal. You get all the nice handouts you get invited to all the Washington D.C. parties because you're nearby. You get treated really well. Being governor of Virginia is one of the top perks of being part of the Democrat ruling class. It's rather desirable. But now all of a sudden the Democrats have deployed Obama, they deploy camel Harris, which I don't think that's going to help. They're deploying Joe Biden, Rasmussen reports. 32% of America believes 32% of Americans believe America is on the right track. 64% of Americans think America's on the wrong track. 60 4%.

"And then to not take the courses and not know what you're doing and then to talk about clean this and that so the clean lines are a whole other category of a mess. Whether it's cameron diaz or not but i think they can be downright misleading. Like some people are treating clean wise like their self care that they are definitely healthier for you. I just wanna say. Don't be an idiot. If you are trying to get healthy. Stopped drinking so much or stop drinking wine like writing. Winds are not good for you. Moderation is good for you right. And that's the other thing the diet wines right. The low calorie wine is not that caloric you drink an entire bottle of wine and it's less than a burrito from aaa. It's an entire bottle of wine. Is like six hundred fifty calories or something like that. That's one hundred twenty calories a glass. It's not that bad either. Do it or don't do it. Okay now my question for you is alcohol free or no. Lo why noar alcohol winds obviously. The winds of germany and cooler climates are going to have naturally lower alcohol levels because the groups are less right or there's sugar in the wine. But what do you think about these alcohol-free aerial and free and blah blah blah. Okay so again one caveat. They're good for those who don't want to drink or designated drivers. You can't drink whatever so great. I'm glad there's a product that looks like you're having wine. That's what you want. Socially can be poured in a wine glass but alcohol is the scaffolding that holds wind together. Right harry's flavor it adds body. It's like it's unnatural to take alcohol out of wine. Right is a less natural wine especially when you get into spinning cones and all kinds of other things to your point. I love naturally low. Winds german reese linked. There's a winery in new zealand. I think it's called. The doctors and his soviet law is like eight nine percent. And what he's done is left a canopy on like the leaves on the vines. So that there's not as much sun getting through to ripen the grapes because ripening grapes for sugar. More sugar alcohols to direct math equation. So i i love those natural methods because they flavors will develop but you know when it comes to light wine alcohol free wine and all the rest of it if people again are looking for something that has the flavor. They're not gonna get it if they're just going for fewer calories sometimes they don't even realize calories come from both alcohol and sugar so sometimes you can get this low alcohol y but what they've done is just traded off for more sugar and you're actually not saving on calories. We had a conversation about this. I'm by patron page about the no in.

"I'm a big fan of the pinos that we produce here of the sub-regions we're would you say the best piano is coming out of right now with all due respect to everybody else just you feel like they're the lead dog right now. The developed in the most advanced the region has the most history and understanding would be niagara although that is divided of course now into sub appalachians. But we've got the emerging region more northerly of prince edward county and some spectacular pinos their limestone. It's much colder up there. They have to hill the vines like the dirt on the binds right winter. So they don't die but it produces sort of these nervy. Edgy wines that i love. They're kind of like people always on the edge of a nervous breakdown. They going to you know so by going gonna fall apart. But when they're good when they're on their spectacular so it's high and low. That manic nece about them. That i love you know what's really interesting to me. Just going back to the canadian system and the way that you have to buy wha what is maddening about the system the liquor board system. Is that your in ontario. Your access to especially french wines is great and then you get to other places at it is horrible and it's so much more expensive it's teams like that system is really not fair more systems. Don't get me wrong. American system obviously has some very serious problems to however. I think that it's a bit more equalized. There's a lot of competition with our monopoly system. And even though the l. cpo is the world's largest single purchaser of wine. Wow yeah yeah. They're huge but still we have issues across the country. It's easier to ship a handgun across canada than it is an ontario wine to bc. We have these interprovincial borders that are insane because as you know. Elizabeth wine is the most value added agricultural product we produce it has so many spin offs in terms of economic benefits and jobs and yet we have these provincial limiting how we can buy and shift and taste our own winds across the country. It's also easier in many cases to get a california wine here than a bc. Wine for san is is in ontario. Oh yeah it's crazy. It's crazy so the system is a hangover from prohibition for sure where we didn't trust adults to buy alcohol and don't do that in the united states exactly. I'll say that battle. I can only hope for change but yeah it's a system that needs reworking. Yeah and i hope shannon. Get that soon. Because one of the things that i find about canadian wine drinkers is that they do wanna know more..

"I wanna talk about yet to great comms. This week one on atom lacks all. We can talk about adams campaign off. And you're right he fuses the party. It's a national race. Nevada is everything. It's the fifty first vote but earlier in the week probably five days ago. Americans have not forgotten that thirteen soldier. What you mean. Of course your headline writer got wrong. It's eleven marines. One navy cormon. One soldier killed in the afghantistan suicide bombing last night. John draws five for fighting concert talked about them. Repeatedly played blood on. My hands also played a couple of songs. All for one really. Americans have not forgotten any of those who've died or been wounded in this war but the national news media has. Yeah absolutely you know what's really is. Founding is immediately when this happened. You started seeing these these These these table settings ray at ad bars as hubs a restaurants where where there would be a a table set for this thirteen Men and women who lost their lives in afghanistan. And then you would see the thirteen years and then you would see in like white tablecloth restaurants thirteen glasses of wine and then went even further and it hasn't stopped. I see it around where i live where people have thirteen chairs in their yard just With with their team flags Setting decided it and And and and people are showing it in all kinds of different ways and it hasn't gone away and i think what the national media is missing and what this administration is missing is. This moment has left an imprint. On the american psyche people have have really Sort of paused and thought about afghanistan and thought about how we left and have not let go of that. And i think the important distinction is is. It's not because they didn't want people to leave what they wanted. Awards show still go on. It's not about that at all. It's about how we left. They argument isn't the disappointment and sadness and and the Sort of imprint. In their brain is about how we left.

That's going to be interesting with my dover sole anyway learnt later that kind of incredibly bad match didn't get the job don't think it was because of the wine choice but i never felt so intimidated and so like i need to know what this line stuff is all about because i never wanna feel that way again because it's something that gives us pleasure but it's also wine is something that can make us feel very uptight and very small town to learn about wine. D love stories about wonderfully obsessive people. Ponting lee beautiful places and amusingly awkward social situations. That's the blend here on the unreserved wine. Talk podcast i'm your host natalie maclean. Each week i share with you unfiltered conversations with celebrities in the wine world as well as confessions from my own tipsy journey as i write my third book on this subject. I'm so glad you're here. Now pass me that bottle please. and let's get started. Welcome to episode one hundred forty four. Why restaurant wine lists often tricky to navigate. Even for wine professionals. Is it worth pursuing wine. Certifications and courses wine is the most value added agricultural product. That we produce. So why are there so many barriers for these small farmers who tried to sell their wines across the country. You'll get those answers and more wind stories coming up next. We're turning the tables. And paul k host of the wine talks. Podcast is interviewing me. In the show notes. you'll find a full transcript of our conversation links to both of my books. How you can join me in a free online wine and food pairing class and where you can find me on zoom instagram. Facebook and youtube live video every wednesday at seven. Pm that's all in the show notes at natalie maclean dot com forward slash run four four now on a personal note before we dive into the show on sunday. My son ryan came home from waterloo university. Where he's studying software engineering hadn't seen him since christmas. Due to the lockdown waterloo was a hotbed for the delta virus he safe thank goodness and double vaccinated and he also had backed back academic terms. It was so good to have him home again. I have been using the hug coupons every day that he gave me for it just really reminds me of how fast life goes by and it's worth every effort to slow it down the hug or glass of wine. Okay on with the show now from high atop his desk get ready to peel it all back and get to the root of the subject no pun intended with paul k on wine dogs where he takes no prisoners and combs it the way it wasn't a why talk with paul k and we are in studio today in beautiful southern california about sixty five degrees here in los angeles. I hope you are experiencing the same across the country. Have a wonderful guest today. And natalie maclean we'll get to the introductions and the second wine talks is available on spotify iheartradio pandora. You name it. We are there and always sponsored by the original of the month club now sporting the bordeaux and napa series. But let's get to the show because this is a lot of fun. I was fortunate enough to be on her show a recently and we wanted to get her on white socks. Because this is natalie maclean. Ali from canada. What part of canada we in italy and in ottawa. The capital the snowy capital. Snow or cold up there. Today it's getting worse. Are kind of warm though. I should redefined. Warm is after hearing your weather. We're in celsius. Conversion always escapes me. plus eight degrees celsius right now so sixteen. That's like thirty. Like forty six forty five so we're all wearing shorts and t shirts as a result because we are canadian. We we are winter. Hardy i said i was a kid a teenager. I was gonna come up with my own conversion because it's not a linear conversion from centigrade two fahrenheit. You have to have sort of a movie scale. But i double the centigrade and i had twenty eight. That'll get you it. Within a couple of degrees either way as it gets warmer that scale change a little bit. But i wanna react because this is very important primarily you. Consider yourself that chief at wine happiness. And we're going to get to that in a second to find that but you're author of the book red white and drunk all over and are kind of book. It weinstock journey from grape to glass and the book.

Red white cameras just a good time over in waiter. There's a fly in my wine so all interesting subjects reminds me of the joke. Hey waiter what's that fly doing in my soup and he says the backstroke. So tell us about this journey because it also suggests the in some of the internet articles about you. And what you've done that. Your husband got you into this. Is andrew absolutely well. I i say. I started drinking when i met my husband. And haven't found a reason to sadda- he's now my wine helped. I actually specialize in divorce. Wine tastings which cabernet pairs best with burning wind. Love lead or sorry love letters but anyway. That's another topic in another all of this. We're gonna talk about that for sure but pair wines with you know if you found yourself a good divorce lawyer and it's a great pre but the after the fact anyway. I'm getting carried away. I'm prone to that. But i did get into line with him. We were to mba's a tight personalities and we moved to toronto together as we met in business school. So we started. I taking spanish at night. And sort of congregating spanish burbs and all that after a long day at work. He was at citibank. I was at proctor and gamble. That just was. We couldn't hack it then. We thought oh. Let's take up golf. Really bad idea taipei personalities out with long iron club's not a good pairing then. I saw a white course at our local college. We can drink at night. That will calm.

"Around fan. You didn't really care about baseball anyway. I think other important skill sets to have our number one release somebody who will take initiative to not need a lot of direction to be able to do things on their own to be organized to be able to complete tasks in a timely manner. Those are skills income from any other industry as well speaking of other industries. If you want to be an educator in wide having education in other fields for example my really good friend. Very margaret mechanic. Master wind was an english teacher before he became interested. In why and obviously as a master wine she's a wonderful mentor teacher. To many awards students. I think those are some of the basic credential basic skills and i would look for in somebody in addition to having some knowledge on top of that. I'm going to take us back. Eleven or twelve eleven years to when i applied for the job search with you and really been in sales but i had never been an official wine. Educator he's one of the things you asked me to do was you gave me a topic. You gave me a week or so to use said bright a short presentation powerpoint presentation of the time. Because that was all the rage. And you're gonna come in and you're gonna presented to a panel of my team. And so i wrote a presentation on one of the topics that you offered me in stood their knees shaking literally making an audition is. I do think presentation skills the ability to speak in front of people employees who confidence. That goes a long way too. When you're looking for a job doing that of being able to write a program to develop some content to curate information and then communicate it in a way that is understandable to people. You and i both know. There's a lot of people who know an awful lot about why doesn't mean they're great teachers just like somebody who buys wine as a going to be a good sales then think one of the biggest mistakes i often see with. Educators is a cannot teach down to the level that is appropriate for a given audience. If you know somebody who just want to dump everything share that but a lot of times if they don't have foundation Nowhere to start. Some people might be totally lost and not even pay attention to what you're saying. Yeah i often say that a lot of people who do what we do for a living. Sometimes we do more to scare people away than to bring them in. We get off into our own hands right so synergy scared me way cared now paul. That's that's true for me. Wc t. roma one two three. That's good discipline. Because you really do have to stay in those downed trees and chris students want to drag you out of those boundaries of what more understeer They want more so just heading toward the home. Stretch here. peter maybe wrapping up. If i were say. I'm trying to get started in the wine industry and looking for a job with my heart set on being a wine educator. Can you give me two or three specific things that i can do right now to improve my chances of getting an interview and ultimately maybe getting off the job what you just said about having great presentation skills. Four wind educator position is critical. And there's lots of ways that you can gain that skill. I going to classes online reading books in such. That's what date certainly need to know your stuff. You should know twice as much as you need to know to teach at a given level so for example if you're teaching. Wctc one you should have wctc level to knowledge. And i'd say that only because while you're teaching level one somebody may ask you a question like you said that goes a little further and you don't wanna look silly by not being able to answer that or these point than in the right direction. Mostly it gives you context of what you're teaching to write. And then thirdly i would say in addition presentation skills in knowing your stuff taste widely because why do we love wine because we love the liquid beverage. Wine is and i always say especially to students when studying for the blind tasting. I always tell them that. The blind tasting is a theory exam with a taste. And what. I mean by. That is that there's so much theory behind the lines. If you want to be able to identify Up or chablis or santa barbara shirt. You're going to have to know the syria. Why wine taste that way to be able to identify and talk about it so being able to taste understand where the wind comes from house made. That's the fun part. But there's a challenge there to really dig into to know like the back of your hands for something that is critically important so enjoy. The journey taste wine and i agree with that. I think a lot of people get into wind thinking. It's so much more about the tasting where there is so much more to it and you're right so many credentials are so much theory involves heater. This has been super fun. As i knew it would be indeed current. Thank you so much. Anybody who's interested wine education as i said the beginning. If you love what you do work hard. You'll be successful exactly. I wanna mention those listening to podcasts. May want to get to know. Peter better heater is actually a mentor through the napa valley wine academy so you just go to napa valley wine academy dot com look under coaching. You can find peter there you can find me there.

And i would really very much appreciate audience participation if you would like to send us a suggestion on either a guest. That would be interesting or topic as long as it's related to jobs within the wine industry. That i want this to be about the audience. I want the audience to hear what they need to hear. Learn what they need to learn to be able to pursue this. Because in my mind. What i love about what i do and i loved it from the first day back. Thousands of years ago is that working in the white industry is flat out more than a job. It really is a lifestyle and everybody gets into. Nobody gets out because nobody wants to all right. So that's kind of my personal mission but yeah you can email us.

"That's gonna be a hard sell so it does bring your resume a little closer to the top. You've got that credential. Absolutely i can't tell you how many software engineers lawyers doctors accountants that have come through the school whose dream it is to get into the wine business or they're retiring and they want to work in a valley in the wind business or they're young software engineers who have made a lot of money and say you know what now. I wanna do some work. But i'm passionate about so they have skills. They have fundamental skills that the wine industry can really profit from the wine. Industry needs lawyers. The wine industry needs accountants. They need software engineers but when they go to apply for a job they have no idea about the industry they're applying into and i think certification helps them with that so now they understand the industry that they're excited about they bring additional skills. Law degree accounting. So when you marry those two together that's almost like a secret weapon for them to enter into the wine industry and that's a great point if you have skills in other areas. Don't think you have to leave your corporate job in runaways to what i call the circus the wine industry. You don't have to run away from home to get there. You could use the skills you have now and just as christian said there is a need for every type of position. it even warehouse managers. Whatever your skill sets are. There's jobs that need that type of skill so never get discouraged. Are things that you have to start over from scratch because there's a lot of cases where you wouldn't have to do that. So let's talk about our podcast christian tells how does this podcast fit into the mission of the napa valley wine academy firmly believe in one part of our job is to educate people and give them knowledge. The other part of our job is to teach them how to apply that knowledge in real world situations. So how do we help them. Gain employment in the wine industry every other industry has career sites has resources for people looking to get into that industry in the wine. Industry really doesn't part of our mission again is to put the student the center of everything we do and we are often asked. What kind of career advice do you have for me. How do i do this. How do i do that. So it's always been on. Our goal is to create something like this to create a career resource for our students and this is borne out of that idea right. A podcast where you'll be interviewing different people from different areas the wine industry about their journey on how they got built their career and then giving advice to students who are hungry and looking for tips. Yeah i think that's exactly where it all fits in. Are you an. I sort of came together over this brainchild of our so. If you don't mind. I'm gonna talk a little bit about what i do what i did. How got here where my journey is. Just because since. I am going to be the voice of wine. Work and passion. Maybe it's helpful for the audience to know a little bit about why. I'm the woman behind the microphone. If you will. I can think of no better host than you. I mean it'd be interesting to know how you came up in the wind business and while you're passionate about podcast well. My journey is starts a little bit the same as yours. I started off in the restaurant business. And that's really how so many of us to get into the wine industry start. It's a great place to start. I actually thought. When i was a server i was already in the wind industry because to me serving wine was used super important and that led me to become a corporate trainer within the world of the restaurant industry. Which so..

Language marginalize is why anyone would demean themselves by using these kinds of terms I don't know. Can you ever her become the CEO but wine company if you're a wind shift maybe Is Yes that is such a great point and. I totally subscribed to what you're saying and I would just ask you because I have to reexamine my own assumptions after reading that caring because I have a little e mail thing that says chief of wine happiness but it is a bit cutesy and I just wonder okay. So there are those women who are in the wine business corporations or wineries or wine agencies, and then there are those. Who Seek to entertain I don't do you think applies across the board. I'm just trying to figure this out in my mind. You know what I mean like if someone's trying to be at whatever TV personality or host doesn't want to be CEO of. Wine Company. Is it the same? Brand you write these terms do brand-new an at some point be if a young woman who is twenty five Ben kind of hosts fun little get togethers among your friends could be the chief of mine happiness. But to me if you want to be known her fashionably. An has to be careful about terms like that. I know they do seem shooting casual effort to make wine accessible but but yeah.

Yes I have not heard of why warlocks wine wizards. Line do well, maybe there are wind dudes but anyway, yes, the proliferation isn't there with the. The male men. But you know I also think there's I say these things with caution because I probably, it probably doesn't help my popularity but. I also think that women sometimes full themselves back in the wine industry by the way they dress and this. Complicated One because lying is impact social in anyone in the wine business women in business have to go out, go out, go to restaurants right end were not only out where out drinking why bright? Why needs plays a role in this character in it's a bit of a problem. Right is pretty war. It's Ni-.

Anyway, she was quiet and I did do the seminar for that men. She later told me it was one of the highest rated seminars they've ever had. All right. Wow.

So tell me again I'm drawing from this speech that you gave, which was inspiring to me. How do you see women in the wine industry? Because I think we're talking about women in the wine industry but I think people can find parallels in any industry how do you see them belittling themselves their own skills and experience you talked about the kinds of? Business cards you get. Yeah. By the way, we should say that if anyone is interested in reading these two status reports, they are on wind speed dot com you'll go there and look under the blogs and they are both they are but there's external issues that women have to deal with right I mean over discrimination in things like Ad. But then there are more subtle internal ways that I think we might hold ourselves back. and. These are in some ways even more dangerous because they're often subconscious. A couple of things that I notice are a- proliferation railway now of. Business cards and organizations that are things like wine goddesses, wind, schick.

"He looked at me said wrong answer. Again and so I thought, alright. Alright. Okay. I do WANNA write a book but let's see. I wanted to write a book about would be about. Why And he said why? Because we're at the time was famous for the seller Cowan cookbooks and the piece that I in written that he really loved The New York Times was on food and he thought I was going to say whatever result or something. But of course, he just looked at me and he said, wine. Okay. It is and have it done in a year? At and that's how it started. Seriously in a lot though when the gravity about settled in for me I realized that what I did want to bribe was the book that I always wished that I had had and at the time contract was in nineteen ninety by there weren't a lot of very wind books and most of what there was written by British authors they were very. Different in style and intone than but I wanted to right right and so just to make a point of that, some people will be familiar with the Oxford companion to wind by Jancis Robinson, how would you differentiate apart from? Of course she takes it from a British point of view but her book is very comprehensive as well. How would you differentiate the two? Yeah. Will you know? When you think about all those the great British critics right for many of them wind was very much a part of even college education they went to Cambridge or Oxford or a place that had a big seller, and that's not the case for most Americans also for a lot of Brits, they assume a familiarity with European geography. That is just completely not the case I mean I remember as a young woman beginning near sell and make Cau- one inside the are the beside each other like where are these places? And then there is the tone of a lot of British for historically was very sort of upper crust dry academic writing. You know history culture food all of that stuff was stripped out of those books and they were really hard to read I mean they had very narrow audiences. Admittedly, they were the only great books. Read Hugh Johnson religiously in particular when I was a young woman but I wanted to write a book that was very American in its viewpoint and that was conversational in tone in fact, I, get letters all over the world people rightly said, I just love the style of writing because I feel like you're sitting there with me talking to me. It was by definition a more casual film. I think because Americans do have more casualties home. And also, it was written by a woman at American women and that was already different in the nineteen nineties than what existed then. And the other thing I supposed to answer your question specifically I know chances very well, and she friend but the Oxford companion is so good if you have a specific question. But as you know, you know you look up kounose micro oxygenation and then you have to flip back to sulphur. Then you have to flip back to Mike report filters or something right? You're going back and forth it's not a narrative it's not story and so much of what makes lying compelling I think is a story that you captivated. Absolutely. So tell us then from the book what would be one of the more surprising insights that you discovered or stories that came from researching and writing the Wind Bible. We ourselves I say we because I have a office and so I think everybody in my office feels this way now as really good researchers and really people who work hard to discover a fascinating elements of wine and I've always believed that makes wine telling is the way it's woven into the tapestry of culture and history and food and religion and philosophy. I've never forget that when I was working on the second edition. Researching the Argentine chapter and my editor Suzanne Rafer called me and she said where are you and I said? I'm in Argentina she said when you doing and I said, well, at the moment I'm learning the tango and she said Karen, it's a wine book. And I said I'm pretty sure that you have to understand the tango in order to really get Malbak. She laughed and I laughed too. But you know I do believe that I really believe the wine is a lens into the culture of a place de and the more you fully immerse yourself in that culture. The more in a way the wind makes says as part of Bat Tapestry. So I've had great experiences who in crazy things all over the world because I think they do connect back why I have two hundred percent underscore that I. Mean when I traveled to Argentina, you know I would read fictional books by famous authors there I went to visit the tomb of Eva and yes, I did take a tango lesson to cared. So I am with you I just love that intertwining of the culture and the wind because wine is culture which I think you often comment on. So I love that you take that approach and it does lend to more storytelling if you do that. Definitely and you know you can sometimes see something about a wine when you're consuming it in its culture that you can't see it looked kind of cold light of morning, your own or something. That's why I would never WANNA be a critic I consider myself a writer but not a critic I mean, we taste about three thousand miles a year in my office. But the idea that every morning you sat down in an office building and just tasted whatever you know fifty chardonnays. and tried to write a tasting note about them that seems to me not on the very difficult but I, myself would really miss the richness that surrounds why I am. So with you on that resonate with what you're saying because I think it's the narrative, the story that compels me to wine as well and not to dismiss wine reviews they ARA service. But for me, they are like the recipes of the wine world. So they are great service you need to know how to Cook your.

"Things either. They were witty or philosophical or something because they help help me put that place in my mind. And that's what I was looking for for my readers so you know when I went with trillion. There's the colorful wolf blass. Who really a going going concern in his mid mid seventies and I'll never drink another glass of his line without thinking of him because he's just so well he was a bit randy actually? Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah he was where he has a red label Cabernet Shiraz. And you know. He's the whole interview was a wink and a nudge and he was just really colorful but he was pouring this one in his tasting room he goes. I call this the leg open. Ah My goodness really. I'm so but you you know he just when you meet people like that you remember the place in the winds forever. And I think that's why we traveled to to really implant those sensory memories in her mind all right so I have a question for you. You're traveled the world looking for bargains Here's something I think is really valuable to consumers how they they spot inexpensive ones that are terrible but in a pretty package or marketed. Well what are the terrible cheap wines that are really just is cheap and not have argued at all look for Golden Boston. No were One or even a few simple tricks to remember it's hard. Are these days because you know why marketing has gotten very sophisticated. It's as sophisticated as any other package. Good these days. especially with mass producers and not that mass producers producers only produced terrible lines so I think I try to advise the river so try to develop a repertoire where you know they are good wines at reasonable prices and so you know back to those insider tips another way to spot. A good wine is say a region that had a dismal reputation. A few decades ago now is really working hard to repair that reputation. And I think of Germany is one where we had the sweet syrup behind the high school portable. Perhaps today they produce zippy dry riesling wonderful food wine well. A lot of the labels are still difficult to read if you're Total English speaking in person but if he starts get familiar with their wines and their styles you will always pay just a fraction of the cost that would for other great white wine in another region would be South Africa they were out of our market due to apartheid for years and so they are still trying to make an inroad into our market. That's that's another one to look for another insider tip would be go where it's warm because they have fewer costs you look at Argentina and Chile is a great vintage every year. They're not battling cold and mildew Roth. Labor is inexpensive land is cheap natural cost advantages. You know elise places. I think it's all good advice yet. None of them would lead you to Canada. Is there any nepotism going on. There's a Canadian the wine section in your book here. Is that a little bit of national pride there. Natalie It isn't it isn't the reason I included Niagara and you know I could well have included upper New York state as well with that. Is that the wines there the quality in the bottle if you compare that to benchmark wines from around the world is pretty amazing so in Niagara of course we got on the wine map for the ice wines are dessert wines but if you look at the dry table wines especially recently in Pinot Noir and I focused on Pinot Noir. The heartbreak. Great because it's so difficult and expensive to grow because I think when you buy a bottle of Niagara Pinot Noir you compare that to Burgundy. I know they're different styles. But YOU'RE GONNA pay a fraction of the price. The challenge with Niagara and a lot of other wine regions including many states in the United States. Is that we don't produce enough to export great volume. So you're not going to see Canadian winds all over the United States basically always sending us your crap you have to come visit US point. That's the armchair travel. Bet You're going to have to come up and see US sometime another place that Francis and I have found bargain winds. aww And I'll use that in quotations because sometimes I just WanNa planets everyone on the air that you can't see it because mark doesn't realize you can't see when you put something in air quotes. I did I did. Air quotes coating outing on the radio quoted bargains. And I'll do it again but but quote unquote bargain wines. Because sometimes they're very expensive but one of the things that Francis naive found are sometimes great producers in what will be declared an off mintage. We'll have to lower their prices because just vintage won't sell for for whatever reason but sometimes they'll offer still really wonderful wines. Exactly they'll declassify their wine into a second label sometimes and it's because they want to keep the reputation of that flagship brand pristine and consistent year after year if they produce enough. But that's that's a great insider tip as well looks at the second labels or the declassified lines because you're getting that same expertise it's just because they had such high standards that didn't quite make it into the the lead wine. This is kind of girly but I think of it is like Maxmara and Maxmara weekend where you have a second label like a lot of the oak tour designers have a second label much more affordable. Both you're still getting that quality of craftsmanship so I'm guessing that the other men in the audience are lost. Just look at each other like what kind of where I got it. We got it from context. Sure Natalie I I want to go back to talking about your website just for one minute just something got that I see in Cranston. I judge wines but we generally don't give them escort you pressure to kind of race to the market with your scores on a new wine just because because you want to be the first person to judge something to get a score on it. I don't feel a pressure to be the first. I feel a responsibility to be comprehensive. So that when you're in the liquor store you're more than likely gonNA find lots of wines I've recommended because that's what people want that said if someone sends me a new bottle you know afresh off the bottling line. I'll post my review as soon as I can but I think the greater service is to have reviews for most of the wines. You're likely to pick up in the store and go. I wonder if this is any good. It's way too much work but up mark and I have all played at the idea of coming up with our own scoring system. You know it used to be the twenty point scale and then Robert Parker in wine spectator innovated with one hundred point scale which mid wine writing a lot more accessible to a lot of folks and then I think people obsess a little too much on scores as I think some work and I want to come up with the hundred and twenty four point scale right the biggest great that would be how many winds over one hundred points. I only hundred. That's my cellar Bat Natalie. Your book is Great. It's always a pleasure to have you on the show. It's been great chatting with you guys. Natalie Mcclain's new book is unquenchable a tipsy quest quest for the world's best bargain wine. You can find out more about Natalie.

"Select the bottle that they wanNA bring and then of course. There's the awkwardness of two couples. Trying to decide on what they both like in can afford and trying to have this guessing game about price and budget and tastes. So I think bring your own. Wine is more about making wine more part of our dining culture. It's not about ripping off servers or driving restaurants out of business back in the nineteen seventies. If you recall I don't read this. I researched this. It was illegal legal to stand up and drink restaurants. Only a waiter could move your drink from one table to another and your food. Bill had to exceed your wind bill on Sundays so I think it's high time that we come. Into the Post prohibition era where we can bring wine to a restaurant speaking of lying getting super thirsty. So I'm drinking a Pinot Noir from rose whole run actually haven't had a SIP since we started because I've been talking nonstop so good actually I had some Byu ob etiquette to share with you. I think you'll find this useful beyond the tips. We've talked about so far. Let me just share. You're my quick tips so even when you know B. Y. O. B. is legal. Check that the restaurant allows for it. You know in Ontario they can decide which nights nights which meals and so on so always call ahead and when you make the reservation ask if you can bring a special bottle to celebrate your birthday even if it was months ago. And you've been celebrating it every week since even if you don't get a flat out no you may send some resistance on the phone or a cork fee that is really high really there signaling. That they don't want to do it and remember just because it's legal doesn't mean it's mandatory. The restaurants can decide what kind of service they WANNA offer. Sometimes a restaurant will have no problem if you bring one bottle to drink but they will look askance at two three or case still when we go to Hooah restaurant. It's been so long since I've done this but now I'm motivated to try this again but we'd always bring two bottles in case one was court or faulty. Because what are you gonNA do. Send it back you you brought it but we would keep the spare under the table in a nice bag please. No paper bags grocery bags. Find something chic go to your local accessory store. You also obviously don't want to take a wine that is really fragile. or the old and can't be jostled in the car. You want something that's fairly resilient and can stand up to being moved around. Don't take your best winds to restaurants restaurants that have poor glassware or it's going to be death by little Gulf ball glasses. Some people take their own stemware to they come with a full case. Several half bottles are always great idea so that you can pair by the course. Also if you're bringing wine make sure it's not one that the restaurant already the offers on its list exceptionally you've got a rare old vintage of the wine because it's like arriving Thanksgiving dinner with your own Turkey. Don't do it so if they already offer that wine on the list. Don't bring the same wine. Let's see what else avoid homemade wine unless you are an award winning amateur. Please do not skip the homemade. Wine often refers only to wine so spirits beer and fortified wines may be discouraged or even illegal so you WanNa make sure that you're bringing the right beverage wine. You might want to consider buying an insulated wine case especially for bringing Rosa bobbly or white. The has to stay chilled. Maybe has some compartments. Let's see what else can I advise you to find. Some restaurants more formal restaurants will want to store your wine out in the back. Just make sure there's no oh mix up. Of course it's a mix it up with their truce. Who cares even if you bring your own wine especially if it's a fancier restaurant I'd still let the server top up your glass rather than you just helping yourself go with what the typical service etiquette would be is if you bought the wine off the list also also final tip? We don't WANNA use restaurants as cheap places to drink where you know we only order a little bit of food or a bit of tapestry and then drinking in lots of our own wine so there you have it all right. Let me just give you a few quick tips on chain restaurants so I think most chain restaurants. Don't use their wine list to attract customers. It's more quick inexpensive consistent assistant food with big name beer usually on tap and a casual ambience but I was writing and researching an article about chain restaurant wine lists and so my quest for wine in the land of Greece led me to visit forty three restaurants and then my doctor for cholesterol check but my question was do diners really want Patriots with their pizza probably. Not How many teams can you say one sentence last year. A research group said that two thirds of Canadians eat or eight in casual franchises. At least once every two months spending more than seven seven point five billion dollars but with all those meals only seven percent of US ordered wine. So why is that when a good glass of wine can make fried chicken taste even better not to mention slow service seem faster and country music actually sound good. I'm kidding about that last one. I think there's some fabulous fabulous country music so I think there's a number of reasons but servicemen selection released. Stand out both from a cultural clash the worlds of good wine and fast foods so slow versus fast I think unique versus consistent and small versus large. I think the biggest beef against wine lists is selection or rather lack thereof when it comes to chain so usually there's the house red in the house white and many lists. I've found are filled with wines better for cooking then again what winds pair well with MSG ketchup or those. This mysterious dipping sauces coming off as a total snob here so when I was researching this article my waitress Jenny. She bounced over to the table and she announced there were two winds a red and a white and then she added that the Chardonnay was to keep the ladies happy. But I do think that several chains anes do offer good list so I mentioned the keg earls restaurants in western Canada they. I think they actually have franchises here in Ontario. Now offer thirty thirty wines All are offered by the glass none marked up by more than a modest fee. They also have neck tags that have tasting notes that the Patriots can take home. Olive Garden's sells five million bottles of wine a year. When guests arrived on Friday or Saturday thirty evenings they're offered a complimentary glass penal gratiot or Chianti while they wait for their table? Just as the owner of a tra- Toria in the old country might give regulars a sip breath on wine on the House since this initiative was launched. Two years ago more than eighteen million guests have sampled wine while they wait. Training Young Staff online service can always be a challenge but at Canyon Creek within six months of joining. This is a Toronto Chop House. Stay Cows coast servers are required to write a test set by the Wine Council of Ontario. And if they passed they get an expense paid visit to several Niagara wineries hiring. That's brilliant. Let me also note a few other things as chain restaurants face. Increased competition. Many are differentiating their dining experience with branded products like starbucks coffee Tobe marrone chocolate bars or decent wines. They're also working with professional professional chefs in their test. Kitchens to develop signature dishes so this kind of goes hand in glove with that. But I still think it'll take a cultural shift for us to associate a good wine with chain restaurants. In the meantime I think we should reward chain or casual restaurants that do offer good wines weather whether we're wearing bow ties. Her bluejeans got any favorite restaurants that have phenomenal restaurant. Wine lists heading over to you. My private facebook group for my core students and I am finally going to launch my free new Webinar. The five wine and food pairing mistakes stakes.

"All right. Let's let's dive into our topic today so I'm going to dive into our first topic of love bringing your own bottle of wine to a restaurant. There's emotions tied up in B. Y. O. B. or B. Y. O. W.. Bring your own wine. I spent my my. Shall we say early drinking years Nova Scotia so I've been trained to be very polite and select wine from a restaurant list. I used to think of it this way. I know more. Bring my own booze to a restaurant than I would my own cutlery or linen however when be way. Ob was finally legalized in Ontario. -Tario I decided to visit restaurants that allowed this practice. There are dedicated restaurants in Quebec that allow it BC l.. Berta do and and I know New York New Jersey California do but it's a patchwork of provinces and states. I think B. Y. O. B. is Nirvana for for people. Like me who love great wine and food but to can't cook worth a damn so I have lots of really good board Joe that I've been aging aging for a while and they would languish besides soggy spaghetti or frozen pizza here at home. That's of course when miles is not cooking what I'm fending for myself. I self miles. My partner is a great cook so not to disparage his efforts at all. Also with B. Y. O. B.. I really enjoy sipping on my wine while well perusing the menu instead of having to wait twenty minutes for it to arrive or to even have to analyze the wine list in the first place. The thing I always do I I always offer my server sommelier a glass of my wine and often they'll take it back to the kitchen and share it for me personally. Sharing wine with the staff feels so much more wonderfully generous than just leaving a tip. Besides you sort of get the benefit of everybody being happy midway through the meal rather than just at the end where you leave the tip and leave right you get the actual benefit of your generosity. Midway through the meal be my. Ob is very common practice. In Australia. Australia New Zealand and Europe it's an entrenched part of dining culture. And I think the reason is that those countries often grew up with a wine culture whereas in North America Canada and the US we in some respects are still living. In the shadow of prohibition and thus we have this legislative latest patchwork that reflects all the different liquor laws by state and province but also a reticence to liberalize some of these ancient and laws about alcohol so I think the benefits to wine lovers are really obvious. We can add a personal touch to our meals particularly early when we want to bring a rare or mature bottle from our own sellers. Let's face it. Most restaurants can't afford to keep inventory for five to ten years to age of fine wine and to win it. Best suits food. We as diners can complement our food choices by bringing several half bottles which are relative rarity. Almost I wine lists and then these can go with different courses or for those times when you want fish in your dining partner want steak. Also I find I'M GONNA generalize here but in Asian Thai and Indian restaurants which are outstanding cuisine. They're often not known for outstanding wine. Lists again because I think that those cultures didn't develop around a winemaking culture so I think that when wine lovers can bring wine specifically quickly to suit those spicy and exotic flavors think off dry riesling or your Toronto's. I think it's again a big win all round I think. Byu Obey gives donors choice in restaurants that specialize in one particular region or style. So you may love French cuisine and agree that the restaurant's French wines complement their cuisine. But what if you're a die hard fan of Australian Shiraz so that's another situation where Byu Ob works works really well and then what about pizza joints and roadside diners. Just because you're eating casual fare doesn't mean the wine has to be plunk and and diners with special dietary or religious needs might prefer to drink their own trusted organic or kosher or Vegan wines but I think we have to face the issue the main draw for bring your owners is economic. Not Gus Dettori at least at first diners diner. See it as a way to avoid over priced restaurant wines. There'd be little support for this initiative. If they felt that markups were more reasonable. Some some restaurants do add as much as two hundred to three hundred percent markup on wines Robert Parker the powerful now retired. US critic wants DESCRI- prices restaurant wind prices as quote the legitimized mugging of consumers and quote. This is especially true for higher. Priced wines it. Even today's savvy diners. A lot of us may lack an understanding when we see a bottle on a list that we haven't tried before. How how much is it because restaurants will try to offer you wind? You can't buy the liquor store that's a plus. It's a new taste experience but as a result we we really not savvy about the markup but we're very aware of the price of chicken you know and how much that chicken dish is marked up. The fact is though that alcohol hall is usually about a third of the restaurant's revenue and it represents much more in profit sometimes as much as half the adage in the industry is customers will eat you poor and drink you rich so we have to keep in mind that restaurants through the alcohol. Prices Are covering their costs. Their food costs their service. Costs their overhead costs. I think the most common markup in Toronto is three times El Sabio cost although the percentage markup on pricey wines is usually lower than for less pricey wines. The final price is still substantial for example if a bottle of wine sells for one hundred dollars in the store it might be priced at one hundred fifty on the list a fifty percent markup but but it's still translates to an extra fifty dollars on the bill but at the low end where the markup percentages are greatest. Wine lovers have good reason. I think to be wary. Very a wind. The cost twenty dollars on a list is probably sold for somewhere between seven and ten dollars retail. which can be a hit and miss category? For quality quality profit margins on food and restaurants generally have always been very thin. It's the main reason why eighty percent of restaurants restaurants are new restaurants. Go Out of business in their first year so I think we have to cut them some slack from that perspective most restaurants make back on booze what they lose on food so an average of one hundred percent markup is considered reasonable. This is why B. Y. O.. B. Won't work unless restaurants can either increase their food prices or charge accorded feet or both.
