Join wine commentator Terry David Mulligan for some great fun learning about wine and those that both make and drink it on Tasting Room Radio. "I take the daily conversations between chefs, sommeliers, wine growers/owners/makers, writers, artisans and throw in the occasional celebrity and see how the mix works. Tasting Room Radio is the radio version of an audio blend, a Meritage for the soul."
