"Wine has been called the nectar of the gods. Well, we're not that snooty. We just call it delicious." Join Michael, JJ, and Doug as they hobnob with occasional guests and alternate co-hosts, savoring their sips and loosening their lips on topics as diverse as sex and getting old, to tasty foods and mental health. And, oh yeah, they talk about wine from time to time - sharing favorite wine memories, tasting notes, and the occasional wine-fact you might want to know.
