Totally FUN!

I'll admit that I'm not much of a wine snob (I like the cheap stuff), but this show is great to listen to like a fly on the wall or like sitting down with friends while I have a drink (great for drinking alone - haha!).

CHEERS ... No whine here!!!

This podcast is like listening in to an enjoyable, relaxed convo among friends!!!
Learned a thing or two about wine 🍷...

Especially love the context of “Sharing the fruits of the earth, and the rituals, customs of sharing a delicious drink together among friends”
A very fun and delightful listening experience.
