It’s true that Winemakers tell the best stories…but they also the coolest terms…wine terms that is.

During our travels we ask our guests to give us their definitions of common and not-so common wine words.
These are the folks that do this day after day. Many Winemakers have their own take on a certain word and enjoy sharing their opinion. It is with this Podcast we ask you to sit back and maybe learn something new….a word or two.
