Watch the Live Webcast with TGIC’s Shawn Loggins at the Food & Wine Classic

I enjoyed the tasting with TGIC’s Shawn Loggins (VP, Sales & Marketing) Very impressive new Malbecs from Argentina’s Kaiken and Syrahs from Star Angel of Paso Robles. Watch and learn, take notes, and if you have it, open a bottle of one of these wines, and taste along.

About Rich

I first became interested in wine while I worked in numerous liquor stores during college in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. In the years following college, I researched, tasted, traveled to vineyards in California and Europe, participated in countless tastings. I began writing about wine in 1995 with a column in Out Front Colorado. For me, wine is more than a drink. It is food. It is a connection to the earth. It is culture. There is just something amazing, even magical, about the transformation of grapes into wine. It is also remarkable how drinking wine with food enhances the taste and enjoyment of both. Appreciation of wine has become an integral part of my approach to life, which emphasizes balance, respect for nature, physical and emotional health, and an appreciation of our nature as social beings. In 2006, I was awarded a fellowship to the Symposium for Professional Wine Writers.
