Interesting show

Well, I don’t drink alcohol. I still found this show to be extremely informative. The topics were very interesting. I’d like the whole concept of the podcast. Have not come across a podcast like this in my travels. Great job.

Cool wine podcast

This is a fun listen. The best part is each episode is short and to the point. Quick interviews with vintners around the world. It gives the listener a feel for the interesting life of producing wine and the romance of it all.
