Up Your Wine Game: San Diego Enthusiasts Drop Knowledge

We're sorry. This audio clip is no longer available. A transcript has been made available.

The vibrant craft beer scene in San Diego perfectly reflects the relaxed culture of the city because a pint can be enjoyed while wearing flip-flops.

Wine is often seen as a snooty alternative.

San Diego wine enthusiasts think this is changing. They say the burgeoning restaurant scene in the county is also giving rise to an increased interest in wine.

Lindsay Pomeroy teaches people about wine at her school, Wine Smarties.

"San Diego is not LA or San Francisco, and we might not have the sophistication of Silicon Valley, but we're a curious group, and we like to try new things," Pomeroy said.

Pomeroy and San Diego Union-Tribune dining and lifestyle reporter Michele Parente discuss the joys of the grape Wednesday on Midday Edition.
