Hi Everyone! So the Winesday Podcast (the world's FIRST* drink-along podcast) is becoming a reality. The basic idea is that each week Jess and I will drink two bottles of wine selected for us by our Certified Sommelier Matthew Forrest. We'll talk about the wines and talk shit about anyone and anything else that comes to mind. We're really, really excited about this project and we would be so grateful to you ...for your support. The first TWO episodes will be dropping on Wednesday - they're a little on the rough side, but we're super proud of them and are so excited to see where this journey takes us.

To see the wines we'll be drinking this week and to get updates on all the new episodes, please "Like" our Facebook page.
