Just like a book, you shouldn't judge wine by it's label. It's what's inside the bottle that counts. But sometimes, a winery masters both. In this episode of Twin Cities Live, Ted talks about a few vineyards that have a great tasting wine AND a well-designed bottle. 

Here are the wines mentioned in the segment: 


Fall is in the air! Have you noticed the weather getting cooler and crisper? With the start of the season comes all of our favorite autumnal traditions. Cue the pumpkin spice and apple cider everything! This week on Twin Cities Live, Ted spoke of all things fall – just like how your wardrobe changes, your fall wines should also be different than what you were drinking in summer. 

Here are the wines and beers mentioned in the segment: 

Recipe: Pomme-osa (aka Apple Cider Mimosa)


Pour two ounces of apple cider into a champagne flute. Fill the remainder of the glass with Louis Bouillot Brut Champagne. Get creative with your presentation by garnishing with an apple slice or rimming the flute with cinnamon sugar for some extra sweetness!
