Wine for Normal People

In this podcast we review the six selections on the vinport.com/wfnp page. As M.C. Ice says -- these selections just keep getting better. This is an amazing batch and one you'll want to hear about, even if you don't live in a state where you can get delivery. These wines are worth seeking out.

 

The wines featured:

  • A French rosé
  • Bardolino
  • Ribera del Duero
  • Rioja Reserva
  • Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
  • Vintage Port (great to hold if you had a special occasion in 2011, as we did -- our first daughter was born then!)

 

Affordable, awesome wines that are easy to order. The podcast is like a tasting guide for you! Thanks for listening and for your support!
