Show transcript
00:00
All right, let's get a palate cleanser,
00:02
shall we? Ok?
00:03
So the pope, the pope has come out and said that
00:07
wine is God's gift,
00:10
the re you believe it.
00:11
All right, perfect.
00:13
I love that energy.
00:14
Well, the reason he's saying this is because the European
00:18
Union is trying to make it mandatory for alcohol products to have
00:21
a warning label. And I mean,
00:24
it seems like a reasonable ask,
00:26
right? I mean,
00:27
but maybe I I thought maybe in misa,
00:30
he doesn't wanna pull out the wine bottle and a big warning
00:32
you know, and freak people out.
00:35
So I don't know.
00:36
Imagine he pulls out the child,
00:37
this warning this may cause birth defects and da da da,
00:40
da da like oh shit.
00:44
Yeah, that is true.
00:45
I mean, they have little kids sipping wine.
00:48
Yeah. The the Yeah.
00:51
Oh yeah. And the post specifically said wine,
00:54
land, agricultural skills and entrepreneurialism.
00:59
I hope I said that right are gifts from God and the
01:02
creator has entrusted them to us because with our sensitivity and honesty
01:07
we make them a true source of joy.
01:10
We sure do. And I want a little bit of that
01:12
joy So we have Andrea from Masino.
01:15
Please joining us, Andrea.
01:17
Please join us on stage.
01:23
Well, it is officially one o'clock.
01:24
We have Andrea here from Mas Beno.
01:26
Thank you so much for joining us.
01:27
You guys like that,
01:28
you guys like that?
01:30
Awesome. Thank you for having me.
01:32
Oh, yeah, of course.
01:33
I see you brought some wine for us.
01:34
I did. Yes,
01:36
I have a couple of bottles here.
01:38
These are actually two wines that I made in collaboration
01:41
with some friends of mine.
01:42
They are the wine producers wonder work.
01:45
They're based here in L A but they make their wines in
01:47
Northern California. And we collaborated on two beautiful wines.
01:52
The first one is called C Moza,
01:55
a dark rose, a sparkling rose.
01:57
And it's just this really beautiful light fun kind of citrus,
02:01
but also has these beautiful rose notes to it.
02:04
It was actually infused with rose geranium.
02:07
So rose geranium is it's a flower.
02:10
And so we use a botanical to infuse it into the wine
02:13
and give it this really beautiful rosy note to it.
02:16
And then the other wine that we have is our red wine
02:19
and it is called Coma Flo.
02:21
It is an ode to the,
02:23
the Queen Selena. And yeah,
02:26
it's also, it's also a red wine made from the similar
02:29
grapes to the sparkling,
02:31
slightly different but also still infused with the rose geranium.
02:35
Yeah, so it's in the same family.
02:37
Yes. So this is like maybe more of your fun daytime
02:40
cheese misses brunch wine.
02:44
You can have it with,
02:45
I think Rose is really great with Tamales.
02:47
Is one of my favorite things to be any like spicy food
02:51
I think will go really,
02:51
really well with this sparkling rose.
02:55
You could. Yeah,
02:56
you could. Yeah,
02:56
definitely. And then the como la Flor is a little
03:01
bit moodier. It's still light and fresh.
03:02
So it's not like super heavy.
03:04
I think it would be really great with some like steak tacos
03:06
or something like that.
03:07
I would feel like this one gives me like a vibe like
03:08
I'm gonna unwind with my Netflix shows.
03:11
Yes. Yes. Novella Winds.
03:13
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
03:15
Can we get a I don't know if you heard about a
03:20
Pope's story but he's oh he did.
03:22
Awesome. Cool. So he's defending wine.
03:24
You know, they want to put the warning label and he's
03:26
like, nah nah nah,
03:26
this is a gift from God.
03:28
What wine do you think he's talking about?
03:29
Specifically? Like a dark probably a Chismosa aa like that's
03:35
let's see what's up,
03:36
what's up with this more.
03:40
So this is our CSA.
03:42
Give me just a little tasting there.
03:44
I can give you more later.
03:45
It does have a floral kind of view.
03:48
Yeah, there's, there's like this really beautiful kind of rosy
03:52
note to it. And when you're,
03:55
when you're tasting, if you swirl your glass around,
03:58
you're kind of releasing some of those aromatic notes and so
04:02
it's easier to kind of smell them and then also it's moving
04:06
the wine around. So it's kind of like getting it sort
04:09
of open. You're opening the wine.
04:10
I don't know if you've maybe heard letting it open.
04:13
Yeah, let it breathe.
04:14
Yeah. Look at me.
04:16
You already know you took 101 before the casino memes.
04:24
Wow, you supposed to,
04:27
girl now, I know why it's sold out.
04:31
Cheers, cheers, cheers.
04:33
Cheers.
