★★★★★ THE BEST WINE SHOW OUT THERE!
“All the wine books and shows I have watched/read never really explained it in a way the common person could understand. Vince does just that. He makes wine both fun and accessible. I've seen a bunch of shows and books that give just a taste of a bunch of wineries. Vince show's you a wine/ winery he believes in and then after he gives you a taste of the food and culture in the area which is a big part of the wine scene.”
