I learned so many things from my 1st episode that I had never even thought about. It definitely peaked my passion for NC wine even more. Can’t wait to listen to more. Keep up the great work guys.
Great Podcast about NC Wine
As an aspiring winemaker, the podcast is great in showcasing NC wineries and the amount of work that goes into running one. It is extremely fun to listen to the podcast then tasting the wines.
I would love to hear more about the difficulties in start up process or how wineries deal with spring frost.
