Wine Experts Teach Us Their Secrets

Update: 2022-01-11


Picture this: you're at the supermarket, perusing the wine aisle (after checking out the coffee one, of course), trying to choose between a £8 Spanish Rioja and a £10 French Merlot. Sound familiar?!

In this episode, we’re decanting the secrets of the wine world with Susie and Peter, creators of the Wine Blast podcast!

Scott and Jools don’t know much about wine but realise their biggest questions about it are the same ones they get about coffee. I.e. is really expensive wine is worth it? How much cash should you splash to get the tastiest tipple without breaking the bank? And of course… what's the best way to store wine?! Susie and Peter tell all!

However, a simple wine tasting could never be enough for Scott and Jools. Instead, they throw the gastronomy gauntlet down as they challenge the Masters of Wine to tell the difference between cheap coffee and the really good stuff. But Susie and Peter return the battle, testing our hosts' pallets with super expensive wine and supermarket plonk!

How will AIC vs Wine Blast turn out in the duel of the drinks?
