The Federalist Radio Hour

We’ve all been there: twenty minutes before a fancy dinner, standing aghast in the grocery, wondering what bottle to pick from a confusing and vast selection of wines. Today, Ellie Bufkin translates the complexity of Chardonnay, the stigma of Merlot, and the jargon of Pinot Grigio into approachable English.

A professional sommelier and veteran of the fine dining industry, Bufkin offers a simple rule of thumb to Federalist Radio listeners. When in doubt, “avoid Italy and go straight to Spain for your wine.”

Then, back from the Sunday morning limelight, Ben discusses his recent appearance on Face the Nation with John Dickerson.
