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.
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!).
Perfect starting point
This podcast is great for wine newbies wanting to learn and venture into wine. Great fun presenters making all topics a fun adventure!
