Wine for Normal People

This week Rick makes a comeback! We get a little industry insider-y, discussing the irritating practices and dumbed down way wine is marketed to women and, specifically, to moms.

I have to admit, this holds a special place for me since I was a wine marketer but always found the generalizations made so demeaning. This one's a little nerdy, but I hope you enjoy it! 


Oh, and it features a clip from "A Beautiful Mine" by RJD2 in the intro.

We return from our baby and massive home renovation hiatus with a hugely important region in the wine world -- Piedmont, Italy.

We cover the major reds and whites, including Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto, Arneis, Gavi, and Moscato. This should give you a good base for exploring this region that has a ton of great wines to offer but may be a little daunting to figure out!
