Episode 63: The Jolly Holiday Special

by whitney & christina on December 12, 2013

It’s that time of year! The ladies are talking holiday parties, cocktails, wine wishlists, and resolutions. Plus, their pal Carmen is splashing out for the holidays in one of the priciest and most well loved wine regions around. Finally, they chat with one of New York’s most bad ass saber-crazy somms.

Whitney interviews Patrick Cappiello, Wine Director and Managing Partner of Pearl & Ash, and creator of #sabertownUSA. He’s basically awesome in every way. Watch this video to see Patrick in action and learn how to saber some bubbly!
