Independent Wine Media in the Post-COVID World: How Wineries, Regions, and Content Creators Can Effectively Collaborate.

By Austin Beeman

"2020 was the year the wine business changed. Restaurants and Tasting Rooms were closed. Digital direct sales became dominant. Racial and sexual discrimination in the industry was exposed. In this New Normal, Content Creators have never had a better opportunity to grab a seat at the table. Learn practical tips and methods to help you make that leap! The industry has never needed us more!"

Mark’s passion for the work takes him to the farthest places on the globe and he always strives to do what he can to help each project realize its full potential. Big budget or big challenge, domestic or around the globe...

The following is a clip taken from Austin Beeman's interview on the Upside of 40 Podcast with Sean Mooney.

Topic: Wet Ferrets & Carboard Boxes: Detecting Flawed Bottles of Wine in Restaurants.

Sean Mooney: "People have been out to dinner and I guess a lot of it is tradition where they come and they open the bottle of wine and you're the guy who ordered it. So they will come over and make a nice little presentation, and put a little bit in the glass, and you don't know what to do. They swirl it around, they smell, and they're like, "Yeah. Okay." Really, what are you looking for when you do that?"

Austin Beeman: "So here's what's happening..."

My interview with Elizabeth Pressler of Elizabeth Spencer Winery was a pleasant wine conversation with a pleasant lady who makes very good wine.  What really makes this a turning point was that I asked her "What Does Wine Mean to You?"  It was a question I had asked of Dirk Richter and would soon become a motif in later interviews as well.  Enjoy!  Parts of this video were released as separate episodes of Understanding Wine with Austin Beeman and are collected here for the first time.
