Ep. 157: In With the Old, Out With the New

♫ Tumble out of work as soon as I’m let go
Ask for glass of Dolly’s Prosecco
And yawn and stretch and try to come to life ♫

That’s right, folks: Dolly Parton is making wine, and on Ep. 157 we’re singing about it. We’re also chatting about old-school innovations in Napa and why national newsmongers are buzzing about wine wholesalers. Find The Four Top on your favorite podcast app and catch up on the latest!

There’s plenty to take in this week…

  • Sweden loosens its hold on hooch.
  • The FTC aims its phasers at Southern Glazer’s.
  • The future of wine growing may be from the 1990s.
  • The fight over foil necks continues. 

Our frequent collaborator Martín Reyes, MW phoned in this week to praise Napa Valley’s growing culture of climate action after we read about an innovative (yet elementary) interplanted trellising technique introduced by viticulturist Mark Neal.
