    005: A Visit to Zenaida Cellars in Paso Robles

    Join Michael and JJ along with Doug Sandler on a trip to Paso Robles wine country - home to over 400 wineries!

    Since Paso is just about the mid-point between our cities, it's a great place for us to meet in person and check out some pretty awesome wines. On this particular weekend, we did a series of tastings, and will bring you the various episodes over the next few weeks.

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!).

JaneneTPL ,

Great idea. Good fun.

Enjoyed listening in and look forward to hear how it develops moving forward.

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.
