In 2010, Radio Host Adam Montiel combined his longtime love for broadcasting with his, then, new love for wine. He created, produced and co-hosted, ‘The Cork Dorks’. The show was hosted with Adam and his good friend Jeremy. It was the first of its kind. It began focusing on central coast wineries but as the show grew, so did their ability to travel and meet other winemakers they found everywhere from Napa to Bordeaux that adopted that same Central Coast quality of people willing to share their wines, and their stories.

As the area grew, soon the show covered everything from spirits, craft beer, cider, cuisine, hospitality, and more. Fast forward to today, the spirit and enthusiasm cultivated with that award winning show, is reborn with 'The Pour', this time independently, and unfettered by corporate authority leaving it even more free to share the journey of making wine more approachable and fun for everyone.

Here, We Taste It. We Spill It. We Leave it All On the Table. This is ‘The Pour’ with Adam Montiel.

Pour, ‘kay? Just do it!

Whether you’re a master sommelier, a cultured enthusiast, a casual enjoyer or know nothing more than that there’s white wine and Red, Red Wine, Adam’s got something for you.

He’s got extensive experience in the wine world and abundant enthusiasm for all things vino, and each episode goes deep into the world of wine. He talks to legendary producers, rising stars and all around good folks in the industry, and while The Pour is a new show, Adam’s got a decade and a half of experience with wine radio and podcasts. You’ll laugh, you’ll learn, and you’ll leave it all on the table… so sit down, get comfy, and enjoy The Pour!
