Al Stewart: Kim's Corner

Aug 2 2012

Posted on August 2, 2012

On my way to work this morning I heard two stories on wine on the radio that made me think of Al.


The next time you take a sip of your favorite wine, you might want to make your first toast to hornets. Or, more precisely, European hornets and paper wasps.

Researchers at Cornell University will be releasing two new wine grape varieties, and they're asking the public to create names for them.  Wouldn't it be great if Al's fans could come up with a name honoring him that they would use?
