I recently had a blast as a guest on the Notafoodie show with my friends Tom Miale and Michael Miranti. We talked about industry horror stories, beverage trends of 2019, and a lesser-known fortified wine called Rancio Sec.

If you’re interested in learning more about Rancio Sec, here‘s some great information from Haus Alpenz, who imports the delicious fortified wine from the Catalunya region of France (not Spain as mistakenly said in the podcast). Here‘s an article from Punch about this complex fortified wine’s revival.

A cream colored cocktail served with pebble ice in a tall pilsner glass is garnished with a mint sprig, pineapple wedge, and cocktail parasol. The drink sits on an out of focus marble table with a neon sign faintly visible in the background.
