Wine Women – Kari Auringer, Silver Trident Winery

Kari Auringer, winemaker at Silver Trident Winery, reminded us why we loooooooove recording our shows in-person. It was just so much fun to visit with Kari at the Silver Trident Tasting Home in Yountville, California. It would not have been the same recorded long-distance. Getting to see […]

Wine Women – Alexi Cashen, Elenteny Imports

Wine Women – Focus on the Hosts

It’s a rare show when the hosts only have one another to talk to. (It was planned!) Often our curiosity is piqued by questions or conversation posed by the hosts to guests. But most of the time we never get to probe further to find out why a specific […]
