On today’s podcast you’ll meet Matthieu Mangenot of Domaines Albert Bichot. It was a pleasure to head back to Beaune, France, albeit this time by telephone.
Matthieu will talk about his background and the wines they sent me (aren’t I the lucky one?). He’ll also touch upon the vineyards of Albert Bichot in areas of the three main appellations of Burgundy – village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru.
You’ll also hear about some experiences you can enjoy if you plan to visit in the Burgundy Region now that the world is beginning to open up.

Aside from his history in the industry, Todd shared why he chose to travel early on. His wanderlust was further satisfied when he was chosen by Schramsberg Vineyards for a project in Portugal. For the last 18 years he’s enjoyed working with Frank Family and making a good list of wine varieties.
Why is Frank Family Vineyards often chosen as Napa’s Favorite Tasting Room? As the winemaker and General Manager, he has a pretty good idea. He’ll share that opinion.
As you’ll hear, Todd Graff is a casual guy, down to earth, and a bit humble…like most winemakers I interview. Enjoy the conversation!

Todd caught contemplating the answer to a question, and the wine he served us.

Todd developed a taste for sparkling wine during his time at Schramsberg Vineyards. He’s showing off his Brut Rosé as we hung out, literally, on the back porch.
