As a VEN student and aspiring wine maker not living in the major wine regions , this podcast has provided so much information, inspiration and insight into winemaking and viticulture. I love the technique episodes and the discussions with winemakers who go into detail about their own techniques....Read full review »

Even those of us winemakers from other regions ( non California ) can get a lot out of this podcast . I’ve been listening since 2017

Jim Duane takes a deep enough dive to serve up some meat for even the hungriest wine geek!! I appreciate the opportunity to gain winemaking and grape growing insights while enjoying the conversation. Subscribe and don’t miss out on this one! Cheers!!

Just a fan of wine here and I really enjoy this podcast. It’s technical but still wine lovers can understand most of the conversations. Actually I feel like I’ve learned a bunch more.

Dude, this episode was awesome. I started listening while thinning Pinot Noir fruit at work, and just finished at home while making supper. Chris is someone I’d love to meet. Even work for. I was working this spring for my good friend grazing sheep under vines (a few of those vineyards mentioned...Read full review »

Episode 1: I started listening the podcast this week and I don’t like it, I LOVE IT! I really like Jim’s natural approach to this complex world of winemaking. Episode one was really cool. The lightning round of Q&A were really cool. I’m committed to catch up with this podcast as fast as I...Read full review »

Jim does a really great job with his podcast. I’m a winemaker and learn something from each episode. Recently, I really enjoyed the Lang and Reed episode: funny, casual, and informative. Thanks, Jim!

As a wine student, this podcast is truly a gift! The breath, depth, and variety of content is stellar. Beyond theory, Jim’s podcast helps bring a healthy dose of reality of “why” winemakers make the choices they do. This is an invaluable tool for wine students and professionals alike. I have...Read full review »

I have listened to every episode, many more than once. Thanks!

I listen to Inside Winemaking as a cidermaker. There are very few resources that give real talk from the makers. The insights and observations offered are valuable bearings for the journey of fermentation.

I love that this podcast is both technical and a joy to listen to. As a home winemaker aspiring to me more, this is exactly what I was looking for!
Mike W851 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/26/19
I was looking for something that not only gave me the guts of winemaking but how a winery actually runs. This podcast has been all that and more! It is interesting to hear the opinions of such a wide range of winemakers. Jim also steps out a bit and has given us a snippet of this such as cider...Read full review »

Jim and his guests are a invaluable source of knowledge, much of which you’d be hard pressed to learn about elsewhere. It’s been very helpful to me in my journey to becoming a winemaker, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about how wine is made. Its also a lot of fun to listen...Read full review »

Hi, just listened to Leigh’s interview, I found it inspiring for her openness, humility and vulnerability when talking about her plight in enology. Great insights for a beginner like me.
Kirky_1 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/19/19
Can’t begin to describe how useful this podcast has been in my journey into the vast world of winemaking. Great variety of topics, outstanding passion, serious yet light, Jim has created a instant and ongoing classic.

Excellent content!
one trader via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/19
Amazing information and insight. So much knowledge. Absolutely love this podcast. If the interviews get overwhelming for someone as a home winemaker listening to all the UC Davis postgrads, checkout the episodes with David Grega and Robert Hunt. Matt Reid is awesome and PWR wines are great....Read full review »

This is the single best winemaking podcast on the planet if you want to learn how winemaking actually works.

What a fantastic listen. Great information in a very relaxed atmosphere. The episode with the father and son Dunn team is fantastic. And for the clown that left the poor rating and comment about the bad sound quality... it’s a podcast about wine making most of which were recorded at wineries with...Read full review »

All over the place with bad audio quality!

Very interesting show for people in the industry... with the perfect earring or listening to it in a sound proof environment. I listen to podcasts in my car or in the street where there is a lot of noise and it is really hard to listen. You’d think after so many shows they’ll spend a few bucks on...Read full review »
Gashanovic1234 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/22/19
Really enjoying this show. I just began with it a couple days back and find it really informative from a business, appreciation and science perspective. I would ask that the interviewer consider getting better quality microphones and bringing the audio levels up some. I found the audio to be...Read full review »

Thank you Jim, you’re ability to find some of the best in the field is incredible. You are doing a fantastic job. I listen to many other podcasts, when I see you come up with a new episode, I get excited. Thank you.

As a winemaker, I’ve learned so much from this podcast. It’s impossible for me to get around and have 60-90 min conversations with so many giants of the field. This podcast brings so much knowledge to one place. Love listening while visiting vineyards. Give it a listen. Dusty Nabor Dusty Nabor...Read full review »

I can’t thank Jim enough for the depth and diversity of enology and viticulture knowledge he provides in his podcast. On my own, it would take several years to amass this level of information which he delivers in a straight forward and often humorous manner. As an aspiring winemaker, I plan on...Read full review »

Bnmjksvevdiksv via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/18
Jim does a masterful job with diverse content to help enthusiasts and winemakers hear all sides of the winemaking profession. He is honest and extracts great content from his guests for the listeners to enjoy. I’m always excited to see what winemaking arena Jim dives into next!
Goodywineguy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/18
I listen to this while working in the vineyard, the episodes have fantastic shelf life. The only downside is it makes me want to go home and open a bottle on my lunch!
Brockwinestudent via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/08/18
It’s not often you can find experienced winemakers openly talking about their specific practices and decision in winemaking. Most do not want their techniques copied or criticized. So any type of winemaking show out there is usually vague or for the beginner. Any shows not for the...Read full review »

I am not in the wine business, but I am an avid consumer. I have been searching out and listening to as many Podcasts, wine related, that I can find for over 8 years. Jim has put together a program that is far above anything else out there. Informative, entertaining and understandable for the...Read full review »
Phug001 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/18
By far the best podcast for wine out there. I have listened to every episode and have since been looking for something else to listen to. Most other stuff out there just doesn’t measure up. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to here the next episode.
GigantorCPballin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/16/18
If you are a winemaker, grower, or the kind of (wine) guy that likes to read technical manuals, this podcast is for you. Or if you want to learn more about what goes into making a great wine. Jim Duane (and his guests) delves into the chemistry and art of winemaking from the tank room to...Read full review »

Fantastic
KoldprestSelektah via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/17
Always good info from coopers to corks. The viticulture stuff is fascinating. Bos, Buckland and the rest reveal so much more than what I get from a book.

I’m a home wine maker on the east coast and find the the interviews with all the people in the business fascinating and informative.
hamrrdoon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/22/17
Really interesting interviews with (mostly) Napa/Sonoma CA winemakers and other industry folks. Love the behind-the-scenes nature of chats and gives a "wine enthusiast" like me really fascinating insight into the biz. However, I have to deduct 1 star because the recording equipment makes...Read full review »

A top-notch, wine-geeky, information filled podcast on wine making by Napa based winemaker Jim Duane. Worth the listen if you are interested in the craft and industry.
CycleCanuck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/10/17
Great winemaking podcast that is technical enough to be relevant, but entertaining enough to keep interest. Amazing for studying for the Master of Wine program, papers 1-3. Helpful to have some knowledge of science / winemaking beforehand.
Peteryg78 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/17
This podcast is fantastic! Jim provides an interesting & expert point of view into winemaking. He does an excellent job hosting professionals from throughout the wine industry &, in doing so, has created wonderfully rich content. Great initiative, Jim—thank you!
Seth Elgin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/22/17
As a newbie in the wine industry this podcast has been a great insight into how people got to where they are and what they are thinking in their winemaking and related industries. I love all the education and technical details as well as quality of people he gets on to interview. Highly recommended.
Crash-a-palooza via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/31/17

BPhotrod via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/24/16
Of the podcast series that focus on subcultural subjects, I have found that either the subject matter is too limited is scope; the host is not a good broadcaster or the host is not a good interviewer. Jim gets a star on all these points. Inside winemaking (through first 9 episodes) has touch...Read full review »
