Into The Grape Unknown is a new Hot From The Kettle page dedicated to the absorption of viticulture. From wine making, wine discussions, seminars, literature, and most essentially, wine tasting, I plan to soak it all up in an effort to learn the ways of the vine.
Along the way we'll be guided by wine professionals, sommeliers, and a few passionate vino friends with extensive wine cellars.
The first of these wine professionals we will meet is Michael "Maui" D'Antuono.
I first met Michael at the Taste of Madison, sponsored by Gary's Wine & Marketplace. Michael was charming, well spoken, and well-dressed. It wasn't long before I found out that Michael, had an alternate persona named Maui - as in Maui's Dog House!
If you've never been to Maui's Dog House in North Wildwood, take a look at this video from Diners, Drive Ins, & Dives:
