Food Mondays: “The Wines Report” with Master Sommelier Emily Wines

Wine expert, Emily Wines is one of only 149 people, and one of a few women in the Americas, with the designation of Master Sommelier. For our Food Mondays segment, Wines joins us for “The Wines Report”. Beyond just taste, she’ll take us on global journeys to learn about wine culture, history, and communities. Ironically, one of our most celebratory drinks has a very dark history. Today, Emily gives us the backstory to one of our favorite libations — Champagne. Wines is also vice president of Wine & Beverage Experience for the Chicago-area winery, Cooper’s Hawk.
