What do Nike founder Phil Knight, a former US Ambassador to Russia, the current CEO of the Girl Scouts, and Yahoo Cofounder Jerry Yang, and Mark have in common? They were all recently featured as “Stanford Pathfinders” on this new SiriusXM show hosted by Howard Wolf.
Mark discusses how he got his start in wine, how to order wine in a restaurant, why he advises drinkers to engage in “vinous promiscuity,” and a slew of other intoxicating topics. He and Howard enjoy a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve from Robert Mondavi, the late wine pioneer himself a Stanford alumnus (class of 1936, a very good year for California wine).
With Halloween approaching, Mark visits Hollywood’s magnificently haunted Chateau Marmont to reveal a perfect wine for share with ghosts of Chateau’s suite 69. Opining on wine enclosed in a can, he reminds us that anything that lessens the distance between your mouth and the wine is a good thing.
