Like science? Like wine? Join master of wine and master sommelier Doug Frost — only one of four people in the world to hold both distinctions simultaneously — in “Ferment Nation” as he breaks down the science of fermentation, explores the culture of Midwest wine, and cuts out the pretension in this six-part series.
In this episode, go undercover with private investigator Philip Merlot in “The Case of the Missing Bordeaux.” Ride along with Merlot as he investigates the deep mysteries of wine, how it has captivated the world for centuries, and what each bottle says about culture and the winemakers themselves.
— The six-part series “Ferment Nation” runs Mondays in Flatland.
