Drink Bravely with Mark Oldman – Episode 41: Artichokes and Wine (Yes We Can!)

No matter what the “wine grinches” say, Mark Oldman declares that it’s fine to pair wine with artichokes. Broadcasting from the verdant fields of Castroville, California at the height of artichoke season, Mark explains that a tangy, acidic white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or Gruner Veltliner will offset the sweet effect that artichokes have on wine.’
