Welcome to this special podcast! As some of you might know, I released a book aptly titled, “Vino Lingo”, wine words defined by the winemakers themselves. The book contained original photos of each of these winemakers in the spirit of the Vino Lingo words. The following audio stands as my ‘audio book’ of the project featuring the voices of each of the winemakers. This is part one which will be followed by part two next week. Its fun. Maybe silly. But definitely educational. Please enjoy. And watch for my next book, Vino Lingo Part Two.
