Information and interesting

Loved listening to James Halliday’s passion for wines. I walked each day during Covid19 isolation and this was so easy and such a pleasure to listen to. At times I could taste and feel the tannins and fruits and berries and almost smell the bouquets of the wines mentioned through out the podcasts. Very informative guests as well. Cheers🍷🥂👍🤓

Big help for chats about wine in the holiday season. Valuable for those who want to get the best from a bottle, not now but in the future, and anyone thinking about putting a few away.
