    Episode 35 – An Ode to Oregon

    There are fires raging up and down the west coast. Pete and VinoMike wanted to talk about the impact of these devastating fires on the wine industry in Oregon while sharing their love of the region.

    The wine for this special episode comes from one of their favorite small, family-owned estates – the 2012 Beckham “Dow’s” Pinot Noir. Beckham Estate Vineyard is in the Chehalem Mountains in the Willamette Valley. The wine is spectacular and gives the guys an opportunity to talk about what makes Oregon such a special wine region.

    The deadly fires are causing so much damage to property and threaten to devastate the 2020 vintage in Oregon. Some wineries are pressing on while others have flat-out canceled the harvest. Another 2020 tragedy to overcome. Please consider helping the victims of the fire and support the wineries by picking up some incredible Oregon bottles.

    A Bit of Burgundy

    A Bit of Burgundy

    Episode 34 – A Bit of Burgundy

    There is so much to cover in Burgundy. Where to start? Pete and VinoMike decided to start with an entry-level red. Basic Burgundy. That’s right – “Ya basic.”

    They popped open a 2015 Aubert Lefas “Les Grandes Carelles” Bourgogne. This Craig Baker Selection offers the guys plenty to give you a red Burgundy primer. From talking about the varietal to geography to vintage variation and more, they drop some knowledge to get you started.

    And if you already know about Burgundy, they give you plenty to look for on this bottle and beyond. Including, another a bit about importers and “selections.”

    There is more to come from this historic wine region. What would you like them to cover next?

    We're Drinking F^#@&%! Merlot

    We're Drinking F^#@&%! Merlot

    Episode 33 – We’re Drinking F^#@&%! Merlot

    The weather is better. Pete and VinoMike are outside and, yes, they are drinking f*****g Merlot!

    The guys couldn’t wait for this episode. Sixteen years after Sideways first hit the big screen, Merlot is still trying to recover from the famous, and misinterpreted, line from Miles. Pete and VinoMike talk about this in detail, but first, wine.

    Pete pulled one of his favorite bottles of Merlot for this episode and it was a new one on VinoMike. The 2015 Roark Wine Company Merlot is gorgeous. Fruit, herbs, acid, and silky tannins combine to make for really amazing wine. The fact that this is a natural wine takes a back seat to the pure enjoyment.

    As usual, Pete and Mike dive into other Merlot bottlings and regions they enjoy. Let them know about your favorite Merlot.

    A GrüVe Kind of Show

    A GrüVe Kind of Show

    Episode 32 – A GrüVe Kind of Show

    The weather is scorching and Pete and VinoMike need a bottle of white – stat!

    Thankfully, VinoMike had a 2013 Weingut Knoll“Ried Schütt” Smagard Grüner Veltliner just begging to be drunk. After some discussion of what education looks like in 2020, this wine prompts a long discussion about Austria’s famous white wine.

    VinoMike leads a discussion about Grüner and the different styles you’ll find. Pete and Mike also give you tips on what to look for when shopping for this incredibly versatile varietal, along with some stories from their wine industry experiences. Let’s get GrüVe!

    As a reminder, Pete and Mike do not accept advertising dollars from wineries or wine wholesalers. They purchase the bottles they taste on the show. These are not paid endorsements. They could use the money, so this integrity thing sucks.

    We Heart Chianti

    We Heart Chianti

    Episode Notes

    Episode 31 – We Heart Chianti

    Pete and VinoMike often profess their love for Italian wine. In this episode, the duo heads to Tuscany to talk Chianti.

    To put this discussion in perspective, they dive into a bottle of 2016 Poggerino Chianti Classico. This is an incredible wine that offers insane value. Imported by their pal Paolo at Beivuma, this is one you need to find. Buy a case – at least!

    VinoMike drops knowledge on all things Chianti – from normale to Classico to Classico Riserva and more. Pete chimes in with a bit of knowledge, too. If you haven’t tried Chianti in awhile, now is the time.

    As a reminder, Pete and Mike do not accept advertising dollars from wineries or wine wholesalers. They purchase the bottles they taste on the show. These are not paid endorsements. They could use the money, so this integrity thing sucks.

    Is "Clean" Wine Dirty?

    Is "Clean" Wine Dirty?

    Episode Notes

    Episode 30 – Is “Clean” Wine Dirty?

    Pete and VinoMike ended episode 29 talking about the surge in “clean” wine thanks to the new offering from actress, Cameron Diaz, called Avaline. Well, the guys decided to try it while they talk about the entire “clean” wine movement. Let the shenanigans begin!

    Both Pete and VinoMike pull no punches in this one. They give their take on “clean” wine as a marketing ploy along with a review of the Avaline wines. Let’s just say they may not be invited to dinner at Cameron’s anytime soon.

    As a reminder, Pete and Mike do not accept advertising dollars from wineries or wine wholesalers. They purchase the bottles they taste on the show. These are not paid endorsements. They could use the money, so this integrity thing sucks.

Soxrunner ,

Best wine podcast!

Mike and Pete are incredibly knowledgeable. I always learn something new. The Chianti episode was one of the best. I reached out to Mike about getting a case of what they were drinking and a few days later he was delivering me a case!

billhike ,

Great mix of fun and knowledge!

These guys are really a pleasure to listen to. In addition to just being accessible for all levels of wine enthusiasts, Mike and Pete really seem to enjoy their discussions each other’s company. Plenty of knowledge and fun facts are shared about winemakers, grape varietals and regions. You get both somm and retail experience.

Kenny Kim Photography ,

Excellent podcast about wine and life!

When life gives you lemon, you make a limoncello! That’s what these guys did when they launched this podcast talking about wine during this pandemic. Mike is super knowledgeable about wine yet talks about it in a very casual way that anyone can understand and relate to. Each topic is interesting and something I look forward to listening to each episode. Having some background in wine as an avid fan, I can appreciate the details that they discuss yet love their fun spirited laid back way of presenting it. Cheers to you guys!
