You can learn a lot of information about wine if you are listening to wine podcasts. I have selected for you the best informative podcasts I have found:
I’ll Drink to That! is a podcast that speaks wine as a second language and features many interviews of famous wine makers.
A guy who used to be a sommelier interviews incredibly famous and knowledgeable wine personalities in his tiny living room. He gets them to talk candidly about their lives and work. Then he releases the recordings every Tuesday and Friday as the I’ll Drink to That! Talking Wine with Levi Dalton podcast.
The Guild of Sommeliers is an international membership organization for sommeliers and wine professionals.
The Guild of Sommeliers promote wine education, enrichment, collaboration and healthy debate among members while maintaining the chief values of the sommelier profession: integrity, humility and hospitality. Through its online community and in-person events, they aim to help their members broaden their knowledge of the world’s wine regions, enhance their beverage service skills, network with other wine enthusiasts, and stay up-to-date on industry news and trends.
Graperadio mission is to create an environment where people who love wine can share their experiences, knowledge and passion on all aspects related to the noble grape.
GrapeRadio is discussing wine related topics that is broadcast over the Internet. One or two shows (wine podcast, wine radio, wine video podcast, wine blog) are produced on a weekly basis. These shows consist of the hosts sharing their opinions and experiences with the audience. Show topics cover issues such as the enjoyment of wine, wine news and industry trends – the hallmark of the show is interviews with world class guest (winemakers, vineyards owners, wine retail / wholesale leaders, restaurateurs and sommeliers). The scope of the show is international so expect to hear many guests from around the world.
