Listen to Grape Encounters Saturdays beginning at 3 p.m. The Central Coast of California is the home of Grape Encounters Radio. This exciting region provides endless content for the show, but we enthusiastically take listeners to the four corners of the world on a regular basis.
Grape Encounters is not a program for wine snobs. The show is designed for everyday people who are eager to discover what the region has to offer. Grape Encounters is about the people, the places, the visitors, the ambiance and the passion that brings great wines to life.
Grape Encounters is lighthearted, interactive and a very good time, taking listeners out of the studio and into the vineyards and tasting rooms. Sure, Grape Encounters talks to the experts, but we also talk to the everyday people who are in the midst of having an exceptionally good time. Yes, we could talk tannins… and we might. But wine, vineyards and the wine country are so much more than that.
Grape Encounters is really an audio guide with a focus on wine and the things that compliment it. Grape Encounters takes listeners to the heart of the experience and lets them be a part of it. The show respects the experience of the winemaker as well as the inexperience of many of the listeners.
Grape Encounters communicates on a level that excludes no one. It has plenty for those in the know and comfortably welcomes wine newcomers.
