    To see how much has really changed (along with the winemaker), we do a vertical tasting of one of their most famous wines from then and now. Grab a glass and join the tasting!

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!).
