Even wine tastings are going high-tech thanks to Skype! Randall Grahm is Skyping in from the Bonny Doon Vineyard in Santa Cruz, California, to host a tasting for Oprah, Virgin America passengers and Josh Silverman.
"One of the interesting points is that wine really manifests differently depending on the circumstances and the physical location," Randall says. "I think the wine is going to taste a little bit different in Chicago, a little bit different in Santa Cruz and certainly a little bit different on the airplane."
First, the group swirls and sips a 2008 Ca' Del Solo Albarino, a white wine from a vineyard in the Salinas Valley. Then, they try Bonny Doon's flagship wine, Le Cigare Volant, which means "the flying cigar."
For the finale, Randall moves on to a dessert wine called Le Vol des Anges, or "the angel's flight."
