Episode 202

Sponsored by: River Road Family Vineyards and Winery

In this podcast episode, Dustin Moilanen, co-founder and winemaking director at ACTA shares insights about their unique winemaking process. ACTA, embodying their Latin motto 'Acta Non Verba' or 'Deeds Not Words', puts emphasis on intentional winemaking. Highlighted in the discussion is their signature red blend, Deeds, a rich mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and sometimes Malbec.

Wine of the Day: ACTA 2021 Deeds

Fast Five: 

Shane from Wilson Winery: Pulled Pork! 

Pork Tenderloin
Sweet Teriyaki BBQ Sauce
Brown Sugar
Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Cup Chicken Stock 

Crock pot for 5-6 hours - shred with forks, eat on a brioche bun - include coleslaw if you want, but Shane isn’t a coleslaw guy. 

Pairs well with any Wilson Winery Zinfandel!
