All you knew about wine is about to bust wide open….we are going to talk about what really happens in the wine business and I’'m taking no prisoners...
I am your host Paul Kalemkiarian 2nd generation owner of the Original Wine of the Month Club; and I am somewhere north of 100,000 wines tasted.
How is it that Groupon can sell 12 bottles for $60 and the wines be good? How do you start a winery anyway and lose money? What are 'natural wines' ? And is a screwcap really better than a cork? And sometimes I have to pick a wine at the store by the label and the price...and I get screwed.

Love this wine podcast and Paul’s interview style. The right blend, see what I did there, of personal stories, wine, and other interesting tidbits.
My wine shop recommended Old Vine Red a couple years back, it is my favorite and most consistent weekday red.
I’d be interested to hear you talk more about these mega bladders coming in from Europe and then going to the internet discount retailers. Sounds like a lot of people think they are buying something different from what they are getting.
No boring wine talk. Honest, fun and entertaining. Listened to 5 already.
You are the Man!
Just love your knowledge, personality and enthusiasm. Keep it going brother!
