Re: Any Wine related Podcasts worth giving a go?

IDTT newest with David Hirsch is a trip! I highly recommend it, really really good. Yes what a life David has lead, it’s a great listen. The ending will move you. I hope I wasn’t alone. I can’t imagine why any Berserker would not be listening to Levi’s podcasts. If you are not please give them a try.

If you have any second thoughts about bringing a CA Grenache the Dashe Les Enfants Terribles could do it. Should be an easy find just under the $30 limit too.

Thanks for the heads up on this as I hadn’t heard about them either. I missed out on the Grenache as it appears to be sold out but I picked up 6 of the Mourvedre. I hope they can hold shipment till cooler weather. Free shipping on 6 bottles was a nice bonus!

I'll second Down to Earth, it hits all the marks you are looking for. I've also used Wineaccess with a lot of success too. I'm not sure how they do it but if you buy enough, usually shipping is included in the price and tax is always included. This is a great deal if you are in PA.
