Video Wine Chats: Natalie MacLean

Do you subscribe to Natalie MacLean's newsletter? If not, maybe you should -- it's chock-full of interesting things, from wine reviews to something new for her, video wine chats.

From the Painted Rock website

One that came across recently is something near and dear to most of us, the pricing of wine. If you read Joe Bastianich's new book Restaurant Man, he claims that no winery spends more than five dollars to make a bottle of wine. $5.00! The rest is made up of expensive real estate, real or perceived scarcity, and other factors. I'm not sure I actually believe him, but since he is a winemaker as well as a restaurant mogul, I have to give him the benefit of the doubt. In the video, Natalie chats with Painted Rock Winery owner John Skinner about how wine prices are set, if expensive wines taste better than cheaper wines. It includes questions such as can you buy a good wine for under $15?; can big wine producers make good wine?; what does the B.C. wine industry need to do better?; and more.
