Max’s Wine Dive on Houston DM

HOUSTON Saturdays and Sundays 4-5 p.m., NewsRadio 740 KTRH

A Presentation of Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods

As our Sunday show in Houston is being preempted by Astros baseball, we’ll concentrate of having an extra-good time on Saturday. And we’ll accomplish this, as always, with exquisite food and wine. We sit down for a new-dish tasting with executive chef Michael Pelligrino (no, he’s not named after the bottled water – his family name is Italian for “pilgrim”) of Max’s Wine Dive.

Even better, we sit down for a new wine tasting with Anne-Laure Helfrich of the respected family-owned winery in Alsace. Long itself a blend of French and German influences – a result of geography colliding with history – Alsace helps Anne-Laure and her family produce wines that are the best of both worlds. Yes, in one bottle. Or more than one bottle, if you prefer. As we’ve been known to. And she’s a delight to chat with, besides.
