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.

Cheers!
