The Stories Behind Wine Episode 2 – Oslavia – Drinking History

Inspired by the book, “Ribolla Gialla Oslavia: The Invisible Part of a Wine,” we travel to a little village in Italy called Oslavia that has been gaining popularity in the wine world for producing non-traditional, original wines with the Ribolla Gialla grape. The battle ground for both 20th century world wars, this area experienced complete destruction only to have strong independent winemakers return to replant its vineyards and rebuild. With Ribolla Gialla, you can drink Oslavia’s history.

All of the wines we taste are in the sub $15 range and deliver on the promise of good QPR (quality price ratio).

Ever wonder why the annual Hospice du Rhone event is held in Paso Robles California and not the Rhone Valley of France? Well so did we! We asked John Alban, the founder of and chief evangelist of the Hospice du Rhone movement, this very question and many others and got answers that may surprise you. Who would have thought that you would hear Rhone wines mentioned in the same sentence as Baskin Robins, 80’s big hair glam rock, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. What are some of your favorite Rhone style wines?
