Madeline's dad has been talking to her about wine since she was drinking out of sippy cups. Now in her mid-twenties, she is ready to put down the Franzia and start listening to her dad (and let him buy her a bottle of wine). Each week they meet and talk about the basics (and we mean BASICS) of wine. Tune in to learn everything you've been pretending to understand about wine - how to read a label, grape varietals, what a tannin is, ect.

Funny & Accessible - Highly Recommend
Highly recommend this podcast for anyone looking to expand their fundamental knowledge of wine. I've found the conversation to not only be insightful and easy to learn from, but it's also comical to observe the interplay between Madeline and her dad. Cheers!
Easy wine info!
It is hard to find someone to break whine down to an elementary level. That is exactly what this podcast does, all while being very entertaining!
Thank you for your service.
My parents are winos but actually don’t know a lot about wine. So I appreciate someone else’s father taking the time to teach a clueless millennial like me about wine. This is an unknown art form. I also feel SO cultured listening to each podcast, well dumb for not knowing at first, but cultured compared to my Barefoot wine loving friends.
