I look forward to every Friday for more than one reason now.
You ladies are the best and have taught me so much. I love trying the wines you taste and pick out the tasting notes.
Also, if you ever do make a ‘hard for chard’ t-shirt, I’ll 100% be buying one!! (I’ve listened to that episode easily 5 times).
Best wine podcast!
