Always enjoyable

I love listening to this. Ray is a good conversationalist, bringing people through the experience. The content is always fresh, and while I know there’s a script, it never comes across that way. I was especially touch by the emotional elements to episode #495. When that family shared their recognition of the richness of the legacy they are stewards over. It was a sweet moment.

Ray is fun to listen to!

I love this podcast because Ray does a great job of waking the line between interesting stories and great wine insights. He brings on guests who you can tell, love what they do!

Lacks coverage ,

Consistently good

Particularly liked the interview with Dave Petterson of Domaine de Broglie in Oregon. Lively repartee compared to some of the establishment stiffs.
