AA Cafe #79

Extraction! Chris Girouard of Girouard Vines, which produces Tulsa Deco Wines (, gave me a tour of his facilities and told me all about his father's 45 years of work producing a new grape variety, and his work in making that grape into wine. You don't want to miss this. Mark Brown of ArgentFork ( and Brian Franklin of DoubleShot Coffee Company ( weigh in on the parallels with coffee and try to understand the complexities of extraction. Special thanks to Matt Sanders of Vintage 1740 ( for his cocktail expertise and to Reid Anderson ( for sharing his experience in Panama.
