The summer’s winding down, and on this week’s episode of Hot Grease, Nicole Taylor is tasting some end-of-summer wines. But first, Nicole talks food headlines with HRN President Jack Inslee. Tune in to hear about the millions of bees that were recently taken from a single beekeeper in Queens, Miss Muffin’s plans to take over The Bronx, and The New York Post’s take on dating and dining. Later, Nicole is joined by Michael Brooks of Bed-Vyne Wine. Bed-Vyne Wine is a wine shop located in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn. Hear why Michael decided that Bed-Stuy needed a wine shop, and how he got into the wine business in the first place. Later, Nicole and Michael talk about the Hot Five wines for the end of summer. Tune in to hear what you should be drinking this upcoming Labor Day weekend! This program has been brought to you by Hearst Ranch.

“If you just read and don’t taste, you’re missing something. And the people and just taste and don’t read are missing something, too, but they still know more about wine that people who have just read about it.”
