Uncork the Sun Ep01 – Your Personal Wine Cellar

In the first episode of Uncork the Sun, wine educator Moss Scheurkogel discusses how to create and maintain your own personal wine cellar in the comfort of your home, how to select which wines have the best aging potential, and how to know which wines from your collection that you should drink now.
Uncork the Sun Ep02 – Terroir
May 5th, 2020 by UncorkTheSunPod
Wine educator Moss Scheurkogel examines some of the specifics behind the concept of “terroir,” a French term referring to the environment that wine grapes are grown in. A terroir map of Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country can be found here.
Coming up, we’ll have episode #3 (barrels / oak aging) available on May 22nd and #4 (grape vines and viticulture) on June 5th. Live virtual tastings with Moss Scheurkogel of The Vinstitute – Next up we have tasting #2 (rose and spring pairings) live on Tuesday May 26 at 7.15pm (Facebook Live); then #3 (oak vs no oak, with a chardonnay focus) on Tuesday June 9 at 7.15pm; #4 (sparkling wine – charmat vs traditional methods) on Tuesday June 23rd; and #5 (the softer side of red) on Tuesday July 7th. Just to note we are increasing these to twice-monthly moving forward. An engaging 360 video tour of Covert Farms Family Estate Winery, which we created in partnership with the winery and Immersive Explorers back in the fall. Fourth generation farmer and winemaker, Gene Covert leads a tour of this beautiful 150 acre property in their 1952 cherry-red Ford Mercury truck. If you haven’t watched a 360 video before, make sure you use your mouse or track pad to pan around every frame of the footage, taking in the blue sky, arid hills, and endless vines of this memorable Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country experience.
