Episode 0-So we started a podcast...wine not 🍷

Intro - Who are Pam and James.James and Pam have been business partners and best friends for over 25.  We started enjoying wines and going to local wine tastings about 10 years ago.  This is where we met our producer Don Maselli, at a wine tasting at 3rd Corner Bistro in Palm Desert, CA.   There is a funny story that involves Willamette Valley wines, Lewis and Clark, Brokeback Mountain and some unwritten history!We started our journey into really appreciating wines and have visited some CA wine regions - Santa Ynez valley, Temecula, Napa, and have had the privilege of visiting the wine regions in Burgundy, France and Tuscany, ItalyWe discuss what’s in a name - Whilst becoming more interested in wine, wine making/production and being a couple of knuckleheads, we were thrilled to discover the glorious bunghole!  All the things that happen through this amazing hole...the hole in the cask where young wine is inserted, tested and tasted throughout its maturation process, and what a bitchen name!  Thanks to the ingenuity of Mike Judge, brilliant comedic creator of 90’s animated MTV series Beavis and Butthead, and his irreverent misuse of the word, we had the perfect name for our podcast!  It reflects our lighthearted approach to discovering and sharing more and more about our favorite juice!What we envision for future episodes - We want to take the listener on an informal educational adventure where we continue our exploration into the world of wine and share it with our followers.  We will be interviewing vintners, sommeliers, makers of wine products (think wine chips, glassware makers, aerators, etc), wine lovers of all kinds (think wine festival operators, wine distributors, tasting rooms and their associates, wine journalists, etc) to reveal what, besides the alcohol content, is so intoxicating about this beverage and why it elicits such passion, emotion and bliss.So join us as we embark upon a fun, cheeky pilgrimage, learning together about the beverage of the Gods!
