Wine for Normal People

Since everyone can’t or certainly won’t want to become a wine snob, this is a great podcast for the basics. It’s a light and fun podcast hosted by husband-wife team Elizabeth Schneider and M.C. Ice. Elizabeth is a Sommelier and has a book by the same name, while her husband is an everyday guy who likes a glass of wine at the end of his workday. You won’t get an in-depth wine education here, but you’ll learn grapes and regions with some suggestions on new wines to try.
