    Ledson Wines are an Epic Sonoma Experience

    Ledson Wines are an Epic Sonoma Experience

    Michael had been going to Ledson Winery since 2004 and it is always a must-stop location whenever he's in that area. So, it only makes sense that he would introduce JJ & Doug to their amazing selection of wines (over 55 of them to choose from). Learn about more than just the wines, as we talk Ledson history with Scott Eddinger out on their picnic grounds. We missed Steve Ledson on this trip, but that means all the more reason to return soon!

    Armida Wines are Something to Die For!

    Famous for their PoiZin wines that can be had with their very own coffin box, Armida is a popular Healdsburg Zin house, that also makes other great varietals.

    JJ, Michael & Doug crossed paths with the winemaker, as he had left Healdsburg for Santa Cruz that weekend and we had left Santa Cruz for Healdsburg. Go figure - it's a great excuse to visit Armida again in the not so distant future.

Blitzed!!

Enjoy the blue collar explanations to wine. From Las Vegas we have visited some of the same areas/wineries that you have. We hang in Solvang area, Paso and Temecula.
We especially enjoy the Co-Op in Buellton (sp) good food and fun… more so when it’s raining.

The funnist part of your podcast is when one or more of you are Blitzed. Thanks for the timely reporting. Are you hiring?❤️

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!).
