    Breaking away from the norm, today Michael, Doug and JJ explore the wines that JJ has created herself!

JJ Flizanes' vision is to inspire individuals to savor the moments, celebrate life, and recognize the transformative power of conscious wine consumption.
    With High Vibrational Wines, JJ Flizanes has created more than just a wine brand; it's a movement that encourages people to raise their vibrations, elevate their wine experiences, and embrace the positive energy that flows through every bottle. It's not just about wine; it's an invitation to savor life's most exquisite moments while nurturing the body, mind, and soul.http://highvibrationalwines.com   http://jjflizanes.com
