    Great show, gentlemen! I knew a couple of things about New Zealand wines, but even after hearing only part one, I feel like my knowledge has increased exponentially.

    Keep up the great work!

    As an Australian living so close to NZ, I was staggered to learn so much from the first of these walks through NZ.

    There is such fierce compethition between Australia ans NZ in all things but even we have to give them their due with some of their wines.

    Great show guys.

    Read, taste, and talk…that’s how to learn. A wine retailer provides all three in one place.

    When I went into a wine store for the first time the retailer recommended I read “Windows on the World” by Kevin Zraley. It’s THE book for beginners. If that does not get you asking questions in the wine store…buy your wine at Costco.
