The Four Top is back..with an all new Wine Season!
AT LAST… THE WINE SEASON IS HERE!
This week marks the return of The Four Top with Episode 90! We are back not only with a brand-new season full of lively conversation and delicious recommendations, but we also have a brand-new cohost.
Martin Reyes, MW—wine educator, vintner, importer, activist, and perpetrator of dad jokes—joins longtime host Katherine Cole around the Four Top’s table for a season that dives deep into the wine world. Welcome, Martin!
THE NEW (NON) RULES OF WINE PAIRING
In this episode we are joined by Regine Rousseau and Derrick Westbrook to discuss why “traditional” wine pairings (think Champagne and caviar) don’t work, and explore more abstract pairing concepts, such as wine with music, poetry, fragrance and… CBD?
Apparently a good palate for wine doesn’t translate into good taste when it comes to humor. This season, you’ll notice that our new cohost, Martin, has a penchant for puns. He’s in luck, because our host, Katherine, actually finds puns to be funny. (She just added this gawd-awful note: It’s fun to be punny!) We can’t resist a good wine-themed dad joke, either, so show us what you’ve got! Share your best/worst pun-packed jokes with us on Twitter.
At the end of every episode, our hosts and panelists offer up some delightful figurative “dessert wine” recommendations. These little bonbons are really just whatever we’ve been enjoying lately. Episode 90’s recommendations are pictured above… But what exactly were they, again?
If you want to revisit one of our recommendations but didn’t get the chance to jot them down whilst tuning in, never fear! Our “dessert wines” will always be listed on our social media feeds, as a slideshow on Instagram or as separate Twitter posts. Just follow us to get those sweet, sweet recommendations.
Who doesn’t love Sparkling Wine Anytime-themed t-shirts, beach towels… and cocktail napkins (for all those parties we’re finally catching up on)?
Our t-shirts are a gorgeous cassis color, and are slightly cropped with a roomy feel yet tailored look. The design is a Sparkling Wine Anytime original and is offered in women’s sizes XS-XL.
Our beach towels are made and printed in the USA, and feature original artwork by Mercedes Leon. Dimensions are 35″ x 60″. Our cocktail napkins feature a metallic bubble design, available in gold or rose gold, and come in sets of 20.
As always, 10% of sale proceeds go to AHIVOY, an organization providing education and professional development to Hispanic and Latinx vineyard stewards.
