Gina and Julie continue their series, “The Grapes of the Zodiac,” in which they pair the personalities of the zodiac with the grapes of the wine world. This month we’re in Leo, and while it may seem like a lazy choice to pair the fiery, ego-driven fire sign with the king of red wine grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gina and Julie explain that it’s not for obvious reasons.

Did you ever notice that being on an airplane makes things like tomato juice and Pringles taste better than when you’re on the ground? While the hectic experience of air travel may have you reaching for the nearest sauvignon blanc the minute you find your seat, you might want to think twice about ordering your favorite wine on a flight. Your perception of that wine will change as you reach cruising altitude, and Gina and Julie are here to talk about why.
