Loving Janina’s podcast - a well blended mix of education and entertainment. Well produced and without the ‘talk-show’ nonsense that seems to have spoiled some of the better known wine podcasts.

WineGalLondon ,

A well balanced drop of wine chat

Janina hits a lovely balance of wine geek chat with very approachable balance expressing her warm enthusiasm and interest in the wines and people she features. I love that her interviews give good time to the interviewee, so often not the case as hosts can hog the airtime. She picks less usual places and people that are great to discover through her podcast. Enjoy!

chri_pio ,

Excellent

I really like the balance of wine knowledge with fun silly conversation. This is my go to wine podcast. It's better now it's just Janina as she makes the learning part easier for me as I'm not a native speaker, but she's super easy to understand. Plus her energy for wine is infectious!
