Not pretentious - Great Intro to wine

Often wine podcasts speak the language of Somms...and you need to research the slang. This Pod is very different - it is meant for those just getting into wine. However, even an oenophile, like myself, enjoys their candour & enthusiasm. They stick to the under $20 bottles...but occasionally stray into high end grapes - Austin Hope anyone?

If you love BC wine, this Pod should be in your library.
