    Great show guys. Very informative.

    What is the difference I should expect from a California Pinot vs one from Oregon or even the Burgundy region of France?

    I have had Loring Wine several times in the past few years and I must say they are consistently of a very high caliber. I ove the style. Excellent show and great wine maker. Nat

    As always, a great show.

    As I drove home listening to this show I figured it was time to finally try a Pinot so I swung by the store on the way home and enjoyed a bottle of Frei Brothers that night.

    Didn’t taste a whole lot like Cherry Pez, but it was still extremely enjoyable!

    Regular guys
    I’ve been enjoying graperadio for about two weeks. The hosts provide a ton of great information and they do it in a way that isn’t overly produced. This makes the content totally memorable and familiar even though they are over on the opposite coast. Lifting a glass of Pinot Noir right now!
