During the segments, these experts give wine-making techniques, information about harvest season, tips on how to select seasonal wine pairings for meals, entertaining advice, and knowledge of wine processes and practices. Oenophiles have watched, asked questions, and used this time during shelter-in-place to support the Mondavi family and the wine industry of Napa Valley. (1-3)
