Podcast: Sneak peak into a Chicago event for wine importers only

Click play to listen about what was essentially a sh** show of an event in Chicago.

I did realize I failed to mention that I spit everything and probably only drank 1/2 glass of wine over the entire 3 day extravaganza.

Podcast: Somm-what??

What the heck is a sommelier?

Press play to listen to 15 minutes of hopefully useful and mildly entertaining content that breaks down the sommelier certification.

I probably couldn’t have pronounced the word sommelier a few years ago so this shouldn’t be too geeky of a podcast.

My 1st Podcast Ever

Press play below to listen to my first 2.5 minutes of podcasting.

Podcasting has come up several times over the past few years. I even bought a bunch of second hand podcasting equipment back in 2012 and never used it. I was pretty tired today because we drank copious amounts of wine with new friends Marcy and Roger last night. (Marcy is a wine-o too www.writingbetweenthevines.org)

So today I needed a distraction and starting the podcast was the perfect activity. Not much content in this podcast as I’m just trying to see if I can get this thing uploaded and working. But please press “play” and check it out…it’s only 2.5 minutes long.

Future topics:

– discussions on odd wine topics
– conversations with wine professionals all over the world
– insights from our customers
– random ideas or things I want to chat about
– something else educational
