This one contains two of my favorite things I have ever made. Sean Cole and I give you the “mastervader” and then I give you a recording of my trip to the Hague in 2001 when I tried to visit Slobodan Milosevic to bring him some books!
The voice of the ToE episode announcer revealed! (her name is Mathilde) and she joins our host for this two part series about the intersection between France and China and wine. The story of the red obsession of Wealthy Chinese has been told many times, but what is going to happen when China’s elusive emerging middle class gets wine fever? Can wine transmit cultural values? Can it transcend consumerism? In this installment Benjamen and Mathilde traverse France to discover this vino nouvelle vague.
