In this episode, Emma and Winston pay homage to the recently deceased Ursula K. Le Guin, one of the greatest Sci-fi and Fantasy authors of the past century. We also talk about the wines of Angela Osborne, a winemaker working with primarily the Grenache grape in Santa Barbara, California. This episode is a break from the "hardcore wine education," as we mostly discuss Le Guin's writing, legacy, and philosophy. We touch upon her relationship with "truth" as an artist, her interest in the balance of opposing forces, and also dragons.
In this episode, Emma & Winston pair 5 different wines made from the Sangiovese grape with 5 characters from the Kill Bill films, directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Uma Thurman. Rather than talking as much about wine theory, in this episode we talk more about the process of tasting wine by tasting 5 different wines ourselves. Find out which assassin belongs to which wine from Tuscany, the difference between acid and tannin, what Witches and Beer have to do with one another, and who married the Ciacci.
