Our guest on ST today is Melanie Wagner, a certified sommelier and wine consultant who lives and works in Chicago. She is also the author of "Hello, Wine: The Most Essential Things You Need to Know About Wine," which is newly available from Chronicle Books.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A group that supports the sale of wine in Oklahoma grocery stores is launching a signature drive to allow voters to decide whether the state's largest counties should have the option.
