If wine had more writers like Dave Falchek, more people would drink wine. He wants to make wine easier for consumers and he doesn’t suffer foolish wines or their producers – and he does this writing in Pennsylvania, which has some of most restrictive liquor laws in the country and where availability is often a joke.
Dave’s advice for wine drinkers: First, if you don’t like a wine, it doesn’t mean your taste buds are broken. Second, you’re not supposed to like a wine just because someone else does.
We talked about those things, as well as Dave’s work with the American Wine Society, which aims to make wine drinking easier; the state of regional wine, which Dave has supported since he started writing about wine; and whether Pennsylvania will eventually reform its antiquated liquor laws.
