For too long, wine has been made mysterious, when it is little more than grape juice and alcohol. As one of the world’s foremost wine experts, Doug Frost has long aspired to remove the pretense from wine. As host of KCPT’s irreverent Ferment Nation, Doug creates five-minute lessons in flavor, aroma and wine, as well as cocktails, beer and, well, everything alcohol.
