Not a professional, just a nerd, and this is some of the best content available. My only lament is that there aren’t more - a move to bi-monthly podcasts would be a real treat. Would love to hear you guys interview Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon about Roederer’s wines and viticulture.

2019 Year in Review

By After the Romans - Jan 01 2020

Love the year in review podcasts. It is especially helpful to get insights from such a diverse group of wine people - wine writer, wine merchant, sommelier. Tariffs, cans, wines that they are excited about. Opinions that I disagree with but provoke me to think deeper and be more open to the broader wine world. Good stuff!
