This week on Quench!: When B.R. Cohn founded his Sonoma County winery 40 years ago, he was (and still is) the road manager for the Doobie Brothers. Today, the winery turns out some of the finest Cabernet in Sonoma, makes olive oil from 140 year-old olive trees, and hosts one of the country’s largest concert series for charity each year. Mark talks with Dan Cohn, B.R. Cohn’s son and successor, about carrying on this heritage. On Bizarre Beverage News, Mark investigates the newest use of drone technology—delivering Champagne to guests in high-end hotel suites, explores the world’s most expensive bottle of wine, and examines the recent rash of interest in counterfeit wines.
