Gewurztraminer (and the “Booze Bag”) – Drink Bravely with Mark Oldman – Episode 18

Flying for the holidays?  Let Mark Oldman show you how to build a “booze bag,” his way of getting a stash of wine from point A to point B.  He also introduces you to the lychee-fueled sensuality of Gewurztraminer, a Chardonnay-alternative that is perfect with spicy food.  And he describes how “Year of the Cat” singer-songwriter Al Stewart introduced Fleetwood Mac’s Mick Fleetwood to Gewurtz at a London curry house.
