Most informative and entertaining wine podcast I follow.

This his by far the best balance between information and entertainment for a wine podcast. I’ve leaned a lot while being entertained.

Meg@7 ,

Thank you!!

I am in the very beginning stages of studying for my Somm certification and I have been absolutely loving the podcasts and signed up for the SommTV. I was wondering if you have done a Cork episode (sourcing, making, history, synthetic, screw top etc.)
Keep up the great work and congrats on the James Beard!

Very Entertaining

Love the podcast and SommTV. Please keep bringing crossovers from sports and entertainment. I enjoy that they aren’t uptight and pretentious about the wine. Great job and keep it up!
