    Carly Pearce

    We are all about budding country music star Carly Pearce, and not just because her hit single "Hide The Wine" is number one on the charts of our hearts!
    Carly called her shot early. Declaring she would perform at the Grand Ole Opry and making it happen before she even had a record deal. Since then, she has won a CMT Music Award, toured with Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, and has really developed her palate.
    Raise your glass and join former PRESS Wine Director and Napa Valley insider Amanda McCrossin and Master Of Wine Vanessa Conlin as we pour the wine and let the conversation flow. Cheers!

What A Great Podcast!

I just heard about your podcast and just listened to the episode with Nomar Garciaparra. What a an amazing podcast with Nomar, it was totally down to earth listening to him, Amanda and Vanessa and I can’t wait to catch up on the earlier podcasts. I just recently received my first order from Wine Access and can’t wait to drink them after I let them sit for about seven days. And I can’t wait to order more.
