The sixth, and last, in a several-part series of episodes in which I discuss my own favorite stories, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, by pairing the major wine regions of Europe with different places in the journey through in Middle-earth.
For these first episodes, and especially the Tolkien-themed ones, I've tried to compile a list of what I recommended (and also get to add some stuff I forgot when recording). So, to start of here's what we were drinking during this episode:
Gondor/Minas Tirith- Burgundy
Paths of the Dead: Santorini (in Greece)
Osgiliath/Pelennor Fields- Rioja
Mount Doom- Etna
Return to Minas Tirith- Beaujolais
- Return to the Shire: Scotch!
The Grey Havens- Vouvray
