Listen Up: Getting Bubbly with Sommelier Jordan Salcito

Listen Up BY kiara mills 05/21/2018


You don’t have to pour a glass of wine to listen to this episode, but it would be appropriate: Claire and Erica are chatting with Jordan Salcito, Momofuku wine whiz, co-founder of Bellus Wines, and creator of Ramona, a very refreshing, canned take on a wine spritz. Get ready to drink up all her knowledge.

P.S. Know what else is fresh? Being a better-smelling version of you. Escentric Molecule’s Molecule 01 Eau de Toilette gets you there, and it’s 10% off with the code AFEWTHINGS.


Special and amazing guest Jordan Salcito on learning the rules and then breaking them...


  • To give you an inkling on just how hard the Master Sommelier test is, watch Somm and be amazed.
  • Read Jordan’s fascinating chronicle of doing her job while pregnant for Vogue.
  • Come this summer, Ramona is going to be sold nationwide at Whole Foods *clink clink*—and at a few very lucky NYC-area Chipotle locations.
