Hello again Wine and Dime listeners. Today’s episode is one in which is a little deeper than usual. I had the opportunity to sit down with Brandy Walker. Brandy is young woman who shares her story of strength and how she recovered from abuse. She shares in how it influenced her life with a decision to become a therapist, to be able to help others overcome their own similar struggles. Brandy also has her own incredible podcast called “Throwing Light”… hence the name of the episode. So sit on back, pop open some wine and enjoy the show!
The opposite of throwing shade, TL is explores the intersection of spirituality and mental health. With a hefty dose of metaphysics and a whole lot of vulnerability, TL asks questions like: What does it mean to co-create with the universe? Does magic exist? What can ordinary people do about the great injustices of our time? What does living a meaningful life look like? Can we make coffee a food group? Host Brandy Walker attempts to answer these questions, and start new conversations about old paradigms, all while being her awkward, adorable self.
THE WINEMAKERS’ WINERY
We used to be a simple farm, growing raspberries & grapes. Then, we took it a step further; we acquired Jensen Juice and began to offer fresh grape juice to home winemakers. Before we knew it, our passion grew into the Fulkerson Winery you know & love today. We believe progression is natural, and we are proud to have become the winemakers’ winery.
Our 2.88 acres of Syrah planted in 2014, is one of the largest plantings in New York of this early ripening, vigorous variety from the northern Rhône. The site we chose to cultivate this variety is on the furthest down-slope of our original 1805 farm. The site is well drained with deep Howard series soils. This site is steep and protected from strong winds, which also allows for good air drainage, protecting the site from both high and low temperatures throughout the year. Being a mid-ripening variety, we are able to select optimal flavor and sugar levels a little better than with some of our more traditional red varieties which ripen at the end of the season.
Exhibiting flavors of berry and red fruit, this delightfully balanced rosé will be sure to please. Pair with cheese, salads and good company. Perfect for any occasion!
