Where Wine Takes You – Episode 92 Highlights 

This episode is a monumental occasion as we bring together not one, not two, but three nationally renowned guests, each with a deep passion for Paso Robles Wine Country. Join us for an extraordinary conversation as we sit down with Elaine Chukan-Brown, Matt Kettmann, and Chuck Furuya.

Meet the Guests
  • Elaine Chukan-Brown: A highly respected wine writer, speaker, and philosopher, Elaine’s work resonates globally. Currently reviewing Napa wines for Wine Enthusiast Magazine, they bring a wealth of knowledge and heart to this and any table.
  • Matt Kettmann: Hailing from Santa Barbara, Matt is a prominent figure in Central Coast wine media. With contributions to Wine Enthusiast Magazine and more, he’s immersed himself in the cellar and vineyards, establishing genuine relationships within the wine community.
  • Chuck Furuya: A Master Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers since the 80s, Chuck has been instrumental in advocating hospitality as culture. From elevating the Hawaiian culinary scene to bringing Paso wine to first-class clients on Hawaiian Airlines, Chuck’s influence is felt both on the islands and in the air.

As Chuck Furuya says, we’ll be “talking story”, as we delve into captivating stories, philosophies, and experiences within the world of wine. Join us on this remarkable journey in the world of wine, where every sip tells a story and every guest brings a unique perspective. Cheers to where wine takes you!
