NZ Wine Podcast’s top interview, a little promotion…

I’ve been reading a lot about validation this year and how important it is to have people validate us, so it seemed uncanny when a girlfriend was telling me the exact same thing on Sunday night and a beautifully validating email popped into my  inbox from Boris Lamont, founder of the NZ Wine Podcast.

If you love wine and haven’t listened to these fascinating podcasts, check them out here:

He tells me that his interview with me in April 2019 now tops the downloads list for the NZ Wine Podcast with over 1500 downloads for the episode as well as website streaming, which is harder to measure.

His interview with me is here:

I’m not usually one for shameless self promotion but it made my week to know people are interested to hear the musings, thoughts and knowledge I’ve gained over 26 years of wine writing and journalism.

Boris is about to release Episode 66 with Catherine Keith @ Mt Brown and is also working on Harvest 2020 updates, region by region, with the first on Central Otago to be released later this week when winemakers Dave Sutton of Te Kano, Grant Taylor of Valli, Malcolm Rees-Francis of Rockburn, Grant Handford of  Grasshopper Rock and Craig Gasson of Lamont Wines will share their challenges, joys and surprises of 2020 vintage in lockdown.
