We want more!

It is funny, punny, with a taste of wine learning. Not sure about some of the bad reviews, I enjoyed it and I want more. When will there be more?

Awesome show

Great mix of comedy and wine information. Sometimes the comedy gets so mixed in that it’s hard to tell what’s real though. In any case. Light hearted way of delivering wine info.

When will they have new episodes ??
