Ep. 74: Frederic Panaiotis - Ruinart
This episode features Frederic Panaiotis, Chef de Cave for the Champagne house, Ruinart, which was founded in 1729 and lays claim to being the oldest maison in Champagne. Frederic was on a press tour in the US and I had a chance to record this podcast with him in San Francisco. Chef de Cave translates to Chief Winemaker, which is the post that Frederic serves at Ruinart. As both a holder of tradition, and innovator Frederic is leading the technical team at Ruinart. What i learned from our conversation is that this historic Champagne house is anything stagnant. LINKS AND RESOURCES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE Ruinart, Champagne Veuve Cliquot, Champagne I will be at City of Rielsing in Traverse City, Michigan on June 10 and 11th.
