Fun, easy listening

I like this podcast because it’s informative but also very fun! It’s nice easy listening but also makes me to drink wine at 9am.

I recommend!

Favourite wine podcast!

This is a fantastic podcast! As an Aussie I love that they link to Australian retailers so I can easily purchase the wine they taste. I have learnt so much and become much more adventurous with my wine choices (Greek wine is so yummy!).
