Fischer & Wieser, Vision Cellars on Radio

Our 21st Year of Eating, Drinking and Telling You About It! 

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

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

SATURDAY: In Fredericksburg, when Case Fischer took a high-school summer job picking peaches for his teacher’s family, he couldn’t have known he was seeing his own future. We sit down with Case and that teacher, Mark Wieser, to talk about the national and increasingly global specialty foods company that grew out of that summer, Fischer and Wieser. In our Grape and Grain segment, we taste the pinot noirs of Sonoma’s Vision Cellars and hear the unexpected story of the man who makes them, East Texas-born African-American Mac McDonald.

SUNDAY:  We have two sets of guests today associated with two great upcoming events in Houston. First, we down with a group of local chefs – including pastry diva Rebecca Masson – to talk about their efforts April 10 on behalf of Lucky Dog Rescue. It’s a seven-course sit-down dinner in the studios of food photographer Ralph Smith. After that, in our Grape & Grain segment, we talk absinthe with Damian Hevia – he being Houston’s man-about-town when it comes to the no-longer-illegal but legendary spirit. A special absinthe evening with presentations and live music is coming up April 9 at the AvantGarden Social Lounge.
