Hang out in the (virtual) park every Monday with three Grape Friends as they try and make the wine world a little more palatable for everyone. Each week we tackle three wines on a theme, offer tips on how to find them in your local wine shop, and answer listener questions. Remember, there are no dumb questions in wine!
 
What We’re Tasting is a weekly podcast from Wine Enthusiast. Three highly rated wines are the focus of each episode, providing a jumping off point for deeper discussion of a country, region, grape, producer, and style. Our expert guests will entertain and educate, adding personal insight and experience to help you increase your wine knowledge. We’ll also go beyond the bottle to discuss food pairing, wine country travel, and trends.
 
Ten-minute tales from the road from travel pro Doug Wallace offer up travel tips and trends, insider intel on hot hotels and travel essentials, culinary adventure, spa treats, sanity splurges, bucket-list tweaking and city-guide must-do lists.
