AA Cafe #79

Extraction! Chris Girouard of Girouard Vines, which produces Tulsa Deco Wines (www.TulsaWine.com), 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 (www.ArgentFork.com) and Brian Franklin of DoubleShot Coffee Company (www.DoubleShotCoffee.com) weigh in on the parallels with coffee and try to understand the complexities of extraction. Special thanks to Matt Sanders of Vintage 1740 (www.Vintage1740.com) for his cocktail expertise and to Reid Anderson (www.custommade.com/by/reid-eric-anderson) for sharing his experience in Panama.
