I’ve been trying to get into wine over the past few years and appreciate it properly, this podcast is great at at taking away the pretentiousness realizing everyone has their preferences.
Such an Interesting Take
I’ve been a big wine head for a long time and I’ve got to say, the interviews have really opened my eyes on some creative aspects of the wine making.
Very highly recommended for a wine tasting session, listening to Mr Heschuk while enjoying some red feels incredibly natural.
Can’t wait to hear more!
It is so interesting to hear from the winemakers at wineries I am not familiar with. Love their stories and learning about their wines, the terroir and the region they are in. Will definitely be looking to buy and taste some of their wine. Check out the website too - lots of great resources; especially the wines featured in the ‘Tasting Room’.
