In the spirit of ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ this podcast is a biographical style interview with interesting people that will focus on their love/hate/curious relationship with wine and the fascinating lives they’ve lived so far. Oh and plenty of wine tips and recommendations.
 
Wine Time With The Wine Swine (The Podcast) is based on my essays for the Food/Wine section of the La Mission Patreon. In it I talk about some of my favorite Natural wines, producers, styles, and personal experiences around the Natural Wine Industry. You can expect interviews with other members of the world of Natural Wine too. This is good for beginners and experienced consumers of Natural Wine to learn things & I hope to learn plenty myself as well!
