The Tasting Room With Tom Leykis Hosts Mark Beaman and Fifty Shades of Grey

Fine wine connoisseur Tom Leykis clinks a few glasses with Mark Beaman and Fifty Shades of Grey Film Producer Dana Brunetti in his Tasting Room podcast. 

Beaman recounts the creative process behind the unique blends of Fifty Shades of Grey wines, and reveals how Petite Sirah adds a snap of "wildness" to the Red Satin's smooth flavor.

Flavor Verdict

Leykis praises the complexity of both White Silk and Red Satin (while saving room for the 100% Petite Sirah Beaman brought him to sample later) and gets Beaman and Brunetti to dish about tasting wine in a hotel room with E L James (apparently spit cups were provided, but--spoiler alert!--none were used!). Beaman also provides a colorful and insightful history of Mendocino Winery and the Central Valley, spotlighting its wealth of varietals.

Beaman and Brunetti announce the Fifty Shades line's arrival in the U.K. and Europe (!!), and their hope that demand for the wines will continue far beyond the release of the next two films.

All in all, a delectable and informative half-hour that sounds like good friends chatting over a great bottle of wine, and reminds us that there are two more FSOG films to look forward to!! Hand us that corkscrew...
