Episode 35: WTF, OMG, LOL

by whitney & christina on April 11, 2012

The ladies have just returned from abroad. Hear what they have to say about the good, the bad and the ugly of wine press trips. WTF? OMG? Not just text speak, now the names of wines (ugh.) And there’s a guest host joining them on the show this week! Find out which hot London sommelier it is.

*Reminder: We would be ever so grateful if you could fill out this INCREDIBLY short survey for us!*




The ladies were all abroad on various press trips! Whitney was traveling around Colli Orientali del Friuli with a small group of writers and bloggers.

Special guest: lady sommelier extraordinaire Emily O’hare!  Emily is now the head sommelier/wine buyer for the River Cafe.  Congrats Emily!
