Erin Fitzpatrick wraps up 2010 with friend of the station, wine impresario and founder of The Barterhouse, Brian DiMarco. Join Erin & Brian on the latest episode of At the Root of It as they discuss the effects that ratings systems have on wine production, and how some wines are being "Parkerized" these days to fit a mold. Brian also talks about his experiences with 100 point wines and why he feels his personal mission is to make good wine accessible at an affordable price for all consumers, even those without total access. This episode was sponsored by the aforementioned Barterhouse. For more information on these great wines, visit
