Audio Sample:

Learn to understand and enjoy the world’s standout wine-grape varietals with Master of Wine Rob Geddes.

An educator, reviewer, judge, frequent guest expert on radio and television, and the brains behind the mobile app Australian Wine Vintages, Geddes has been a forerunner in the democratization of the wine industry.

In this 12-part audio course, Geddes shares some tricks of the trade with the casual wine-drinker.

Taking cues from Geddes’s expertise, you will consider the chemistry behind the creation of flavor—the nuances of which he breaks down into the balance, length, intensity, and complexity of flavor. As you’ll see, he praises bottles under $20 with the same enthusiasm as bottles over $150.

Throughout the program, Geddes recommends wines for you to sample. The effect is of touring wine country, minus the costs of travel and lodging. You will get to explore a number of familiar wines in depth, including

  • Cabernet Sauvignon (from Chile and Anderson Valley, California);

  • Champagne and Sparkling Wines;

  • Chardonnay (from the Napa Valley and Australia);

  • Merlot (from Italy and California);

  • Pinot Grigio (from Italy and Oregon); and

  • Port and Madeira.

Whether you aim to assemble your own amateur collection or aspire to become more knowledgeable about pairings, Geddes’s program is right up your alley.
