This week's guest on In the Drink is AJ Ojeda-Pons. AJ, sommelier of The Lambs Club, brings a wealth of knowledge and style to all he serves. His passionate enthusiasm for the craft of winemaking is contagious to diners and wine enthusiasts alike. AJ, winner of GQ's "Best Dressed Sommelier" award, brings his sense of style & his belief that one should "drink champagne every day" everywhere he goes. David Lombardo, wine and beverage director for Benchmarc Restaurants, crafted his own wine education through tasting, reading and traveling to wine regions throughout Europe and the United States and his devotion to the wine experience is evident throughout the famous wine lists he oversees at Landmarc (Tribeca & Columbus Circle), Ditch Plains and Kingside. David and AJ's bios are attached for your reference. This program was brought to you by Visit Napa Valley.

"I like to be able to offer a little bit of everything. Sometimes people aren't looking to commit to a whole bottle of wine during dinner." [20:00]

This week on In the Drink, Joe Campanale is joined by Doug Polaner of Polaner Selections. Doug got the wine bug in 1985 while studying abroad in Paris. Though, after graduating from college the following year and moving to NY City, wine remained a background hobby while he slugged it out on Madison Avenue working for several Ad Agencies. Eventually, the wine bug won out, and he started selling wine in 1991 for Excelsior Wine & Spirits, and later, in 1993, for Michael Skurnik Wines. It wasn’t until 1999 that Doug, along with his soon-to-be wife and business partner, Tina Fischer, started Polaner Selections. “It was our first child, literally and figuratively”, says Fischer. Though starting in an already crowded marketplace, the company knew it had to stand out to be relevant, and the couple worked hard to create a progressive and cutting-edge portfolio. Fortunately, success came early, and the company was recognized in Decanter Magazine as one of NY’s up-and-comers, and soon thereafter, as “Importer of the Year” in Food & Wine Magazine in 2003. Today, Polaner Selections employs 35 people, selling wine throughout New York and New Jersey. The portfolio includes such luminaries as Giacomo Conterno, Fattoria di Fèlsina, Jerome Prevost, Domaine Huet, Littorai and Arnot-Roberts, among others.​ This program was brought to you by Michter's.

"It's less about blending now and more about single vintage, single vineyard wines.. they differ year to year but that's what makes wine great!" [20:00]

"I think champagne is a super exciting region right now." [20:00]

This episode of the Joshua David Stein Variety Hour....Half Hour starts with a poem by Linh Dinh, a Vietnamese-American poet, fiction writer, translator, and photographer. Joshua then delves into the unpacking of politics surrounding fried chicken, starting with his review of Birds & Bubbles (click here to read). He talks with culinary educator, Michael Twitty (Afroculinaria), about the racial connection sometimes made with fried chicken and how sometimes people misunderstand it. In the second half of the show, musical guest Corn Mo talks about his music and plays us three of his sweet tunes. This show was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.

"You can try to divorce things like that from their past context but these things die hard and as long as they're out there, this is an issue we have to deal with." [9:45]

"Some of these stereotypes about groups will come down to the next generation and they'll manifest but the issue is do they understand them?" [9:45]

--Michael Twitty on the Joshua David Stein Variety Hour...Half Hour

"Me and a friend of mine Magic Brian, we would do a New Year's eve show at Parkside Lounge every year, where I would make my famous ribs, made of pork. I also made kale ribs for the vegan friends." [23:30]
