Quench! – The Myth of Sulfites

The role of sulfur in winemaking—and its effects on consumers—is one of the most misunderstood topics in the world of wine. Many wine drinkers believe that they are allergic to sulfites, that red wines contain more sulfites than whites, that European wines have lower sulfite levels than American ones: the misconceptions go on and on. Mark tackles this subject and reveals the truth, and what he has to say will surprise you. On Bizarre Beverage News, Mark reveals the country’s highest restaurant corkage fee, investigates the wine investment opportunity that eluded the panel of Shark Tank, and explores whether bad wine was the cause for Beethoven’s deafness.
