Leslie Hennessy, host of Wine Around with Hennessy

Leslie Hennessy, a 54-year veteran of the wine industry, educates the KSVY listeners about the vast world of wine. Program highlights will delve into the professional wine worlds of Oenology, Viticulture, and Ampelography. With guest wine makers, vineyard owners, wine merchants, wholesalers, and educators, the program will delve into all facets of this industry that contributes $57.6 billion to the state's economy and $114 billion to the overall U.S. economy yearly.

Tune in weekly for live, on-air interviews with the exciting men and women that will walk us through their interesting lives in this fascinating agricultural field and its importance to the State of California and Sonoma County. With each passing month in the vineyards, Les strolls us through pruning, flowering, soil differences, bud break, necessary water and nutrients, disease, fruit set, and the exciting harvest. Inside the winery Leslie walks us through fermentations, aging, racking, fining, bottling, and wine sales.
