The world of wine is layered, diverse and overall – delicious. Tune in to a viniculture themed episode of Word of Mouth as host Leiti Hsu is joined by Mark Bright, wine director and partner of Saison Restaurant in San Francisco. Mark gives listeners a wealth of information on wine — from collecting to consuming — and he shares his own unlikely culinary journey. Hear how he found the restaurant industry and why he sees wine as a more inclusive industry than it’s known to be. Also get some inside insights on the Chinese wine industry. This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.
