Drink up! If you’re looking for a good glass of wine, you needn’t look far.

On a recent segment of KCUR-FM’s Up to Date, Host Steve Kraske welcomed wine expert Doug Frost to the table. Frost is one of three people in the world to hold the dual-designation “Master Sommelier” and “Master of Wine.”

Frost is a Kansas City author who writes and lectures about wine, beer and spirits. His first book, Uncorking Wine, released in the summer of 1996, is still a staple for many restaurant and retail companies and their staff and management. He is also a columnist and contributing editor for Santé Magazine, as well as the beverage columnist for the Kansas City Star. Frost also hosts KCPT’s “Check, Please! Kansas City.”

Frost recommends:

Somerset Ridge (Kansas) 2010 Chardonel

St. James Winery (Missouri) 2011 Traminette

Jowler Creek (Platte County, Mo) 2009 Chambourcin

Stone Hill (Missouri) Cream Sherry

KCUR-FM is a service of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
