I met recently with wine journalist and author Dan Berger early one day in November and we chatted in a rather busy lobby of a Marriott Hotel. I could have listened to Dan for hours. He has seen so very much of the wine industry that it simply blows my mind. I owe a special thanks to Eric Awes for introducing me to Dan via email. While editing the audio for this podcast, I had the great pleasure of reliving our conversation in that busy lobby.

You can hear Dan on our Vino Lingo segment defining the term “Trocken”

    Ray: you make my heart ” soar like an Eagle” with you kind word during Dan’s interview. Perhaps someday you will give the interviewee the question before so they can come up with the best answer .
    PS: glad you found Dan very interesting to interview !!
