History about Testa Vineyards

Hi Ellen
I enjoyed a little history about Maria Martinson and how she actually started making and selling, wines. Through your podcast, I’m continually learning about wine textures, different tastes on the tongue, and the extensive ingredients in just one bottle of wine. Thank you.

The greatest wine podcast on Earth

If you are a wine enthusiast or would like to learn more about wine then this is the show I would recommend for you. Ellen Clifford is a great host who will share her insights and knowledge into all things wine and does it in such an entertaining way that your mind will never wander.
