MAR and Adam sit down with Vermont wine maker Krista Skruggs of Zafa Wine and talk about what it takes to open a winery on nothing but a few dollars and a dream.
MAR and Adam drink Lamimidia's "Frekt" while discussing the impending 100% tariffs on European wine, how it could affect the economy of natural wine and also, while we're here, fuck Trump, dude.
MAR and Adam drink Jus Jus by Martha Stoumen and talk about the growing popularity of Piquette, a low abv beverage made from the pomace of grapes.
MAR and Adam GET REAL with hospitality activist and educator Ashtin Berry over a bottle of Ad Vinum's 2017 "Levat" rosé. The brilliant Berry, who's also a sommelier & bartender, takes us to school on creating equity in the industry, how community needs to be as sustainable as environmental practices, the time her & Adam got into in the comments and so, so much more, including discussing last month's New York Times report on sexual assault in the wine industry MAR was a part of.
