We’ve partnered with the talented craftsmen you’ll hear on this show to deliver their premium wines right to your door.

Love this podcast and wine pairing!
I’d give it 5 stars, but it’s too short at present. We’d love more content. More stories, more information about the wine and the makers.
Love the concept … could use more educational content
Here’s a thought: maybe add some extra content on the subject wine - grape, region etc - by way of someone like Elizabeth Schneider from @wines for normal people”. The podcast is all of 12 minutes - I’d love it to span a couple glasses of the wine, not just one.
Hope to hear more
Just listened to a good interview with a Monterey County winemaker and Slate interviewer and hope to hear more.
