Mark Doherty

Winemaker, Hirsch Vineyards

The Guys welcome Mark Doherty to trace his path from restaurant manager in New Jersey (where Francis worked for him way back when) to winemaker at the prestigious Hirsch Vineyards in Sonoma. Hirsch Vineyards has long grown grapes for such notable producers of Pinot Noir as Flowers, Littorai and William Selyem. Hirsch started bottling its own wines starting in 2001 and Mark has the exciting job of heading up this project.

The guys also discuss the Gallup poll finding that wine has finally overtaken beer as America's #1 adult beverage. They also discuss milk: whole, skim, organic and un-pasteurized.

The Restaurant Guys

Who Are The Restaurant Guys? Every week, Francis Schott and Mark Pascal host the Restaurant Guys, a show that's as informative as it is fun. Francis and Mark own Stage Left Restaurant in the heart of New Brunswick's theatre district, and, along with their expertise in a wide range of fine dining and wine matters, they bring to the table humor and intelligent conversation, perfect for the midday listener. The show includes discussions and interviews with famous chefs, restaurateurs, wine and food writers, critics; and the Guys even give stuff away occasionally.
