Very diverse range of subject matter that really delves into the nuance of a particular topic.

The trio of Adam, Joanna and Zach offer fun, witty, passionate and educated banter. Through their work at VinePair they are able to offer the educated viewpoints of industry insiders, but with the freedom to be honest (brutal at times) about the shenanigans of Beverage Alcohol and Hospitality in...Read full review »

Not sure how I’ve slept on this podcast this long, but this is brilliant. As the manager of over 80 brands in a tenured fine wine and spirits distributor, the “does anyone know how to sell wine?” episode was like a much needed therapy session. I talk with my colleagues about this all the time and...Read full review »
Duncan,yes like the donuts. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/24
I listen to every episode. Wine pro. Why the hate on n/a options? This is where the market is going and it’s responsible to respond. Also better for us all, it’s okay to pivot. One host in particular seems to keep his head in the sand…

Reading other reviews, it looks like I’m not alone in my feedback and not much has changed over the last few years. The topics are very smart and interesting, the discussions are concise, and the hosts do a great job of not interrupting or talking over one another. Fantastic content that’s...Read full review »

Feels familiar and is informative. Good for insights to how industry pros feel and helpful for ideas to implement in your own service.
Jakeyv12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/23
While informative at times, most episodes devolve into “Old Man Yells At Cloud: The Podcast”. Constantly complaining about EVERYTHING in wine and spirits, offering no advice or ideas on how to improve. Gatekeeping disguised as altruism, the worst kind of snobbery in this industry.

Tight, focused, and thoughtful discussions about the state of the industry and its future.
picnic_king_of_nyc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/23
Super informative, you guys definitely have a finger on the pulse of the industry! Great coverage of the Anchor Steam situation! My only minor complaint is that Joanna— with all due respect— always sounds like she’s half asleep. 😬

I really enjoyed hearing what the possible fallout and factors are in the news about Ste Michelle cutting its grape buying this year. I recommend listening to this - it makes you think about cheap wine and how it is equivalent to cheap beer, in a way.
Winedrinker23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/15/23
I listen to a lot of podcasts but very few are in the must-listen to every episode the day it releases category; the VinePair podcast is one of them. I enjoy the insights into parts of the drinks business I wouldn’t normally get exposure to as someone not in the industry. The vibe is fun, keep up...Read full review »

Does any other country count? Very USA centric when talking about cocktails. Cringe worthy 🙈
coventry blaze via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/18/23
First things first: Thank you for making this podcast in a way that makes learning about wine fun without the pretentiousness and judgement and snobbery that makes it difficult to “understand” wine! 🙌🍷👌 I’ve been listening to the podcast for a little over a year, but the recent Caymus episode...Read full review »

Loved their intelligence on this episode !
WiseColly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/23
I love tuning in and hearing about what’s going on in the world of beverages and dining culture. The topics are thoroughly discussed with different perspectives. I learn lots and appreciate the insight. Cheers!
BozLover via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/23
Title says it all. Kick the episode off with some ageism then insert poor attempts at humor. How are you going to go from talking smack about how young people don’t have cellars or care about scores to talking about the the multiple times you are at Charter Oak in 5 minutes.
somm_degenerate via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/14/23
I’m kind of surprised that I like this pod as much as I do. I admire the even-minded perspective that these folks bring to the market. Millennials and younger, don’t let their penchant for wine turn you off 🙃.
Ti' Ponch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/23
This podcast does a great job of covering current topics across the beverage alcohol space. Beer, wine and spirits get pretty equal treatment, which is rare. The hosts are pretty opinionated, which I appreciate - even more as time goes on. The content has continued to evolve over the five years...Read full review »

This podcast is my favorite source for keeping up on trends in the industry. I love that the hosts don’t hold back and let their personality really come through. Not stuffy at all.
abigrace20 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/23
I find it amusing that two guys almost 40 talk about how Napa isn’t for young people. Dudes - your old! Also, if you want a good tasting experience in Napa you have to put some work in. There are still diamonds in the rough that are independent winemakers making great wines that aren’t the...Read full review »

Fantastic insights on the industry and drinks culture marred by conceited and unnecessary political references and juvenile rants.
Rag996 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/23
As a winemaker, and brand owner, I thoroughly enjoy this podcast. Every Monday and Friday I’m tuning in to continually learn how to better project the message of my winery. In a world that is dominated by old heads, VinePair is bringing new life to all forms of alcohol and marketing. Bravo!
Serrano Wine via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/23
Best podcast about wine and spirits hands-down and few of the only voices to correctly articulate the ups and downs of hospitality since March 2020. Adam, Joanna and Zach are true comrades.
GoodWinePeople via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/23
Joanna, Adam and Zach have great chemistry on the air and as a result this POD is entertaining, informative and a great listen! I look forward to every episode. Do yourself a favor and follow this show and start downloading the episodes.
VA wine guy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/23
You could have made your point about the wine community unwisely ignoring the younger crowd in marketing efforts, without rude and disrespectful references to older people when discussing a recent wine awards event. You could also leave the political references out. I guess “ageism” is not on...Read full review »

As a huge millennial wine lover, I especially loved today’s podcast (01/30/23). But today, the opening with the banter about espresso just solidified why I love this podcast. Great chemistry between hosts and I like the deviations. I find this is the podcast I usually talk about the most. Thank you!
_cer0trece_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/23
Episodes in 2018 were very informative. 2019 is full of complaining. Listening now after a couple years and review is the same. Informative but put off by the amount of complaining.
wlsonb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/23
Hmmmmmm. Episode 109: Spent 10 minutes talking about TV shows, and 13 minutes talking about magnums of wine. Not good.
dalanford via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/22
I love how the hosts are sharing new topics as well as fresh and different perspectives on a variety of topics about wine. I also love the vibe of the show and how they try different brands share details and knowledge about all things wine.
Zia Amazon via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 09/12/22
Been listening since the beginning. Love their all inclusive approach. Never single out a particular style or category that is best. They give equal credence and objective viewpoints on trends from bud light to Romanee Conti and everything in between. As an industry vet with a partiality to...Read full review »

I love how diverse the topics are in the world of drinks! Came here for the wine discussion and rarely have cocktails, but you all make me want to try more!

I love the podcast. But please Johanna stop with the Mmm hum affirmations. It’s a bit distracting.
JA206 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/21
I enjoy the passion and sincerity of all the podcasts here. The information is invaluable. I enjoy them immensely. However the amount of times the word “ like” is used is beyond my understanding. For every time the word “ like” is used and if I was given a dollar each time…. It would be like…...Read full review »

Finally a podcast with the right balance of educational content, personal anecdotes, and personalities of the beverage world. This one gets it right. The hosts are knowledgeable without pretension and tackle trends from unique angles (e.g., in flight drinks in the age of the canned cocktail)....Read full review »

It is so fun to listen to the excitement in Keith’s voice as he educates you on so many great topics and people!! I have learned so much as I do my driving throughout the week.

Adam, Zach and all of their guests provide a genuinely interesting and enjoyable podcasts. It touches on trends in the USA drinks industry without being insular and self centred. I find points of interest for a tragic but not industry insider. Thanks
luv abc via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/03/21
I generally like the insight VinePair gives into the drinks industry. But it feels awfully awkward that I rarely hear black voices represented into their various podcasts or instagram posts. More so this first Black History month after the historic BLM movement of 2020. But please do tell us how...Read full review »

Great analysis, great banter. Makes you thirsty.
iPad Cook via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/11/21
The show used to be good. Adam just ruins it with his immature rants and complaining.
Pwbnyc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/20
As a gen xer wine person, I find this podcast very difficult to listen to. Lots of whining, “likes,” up speak. It’s really quite annoying and detracts from the material.
gen.xer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/03/20
Nuff said.
Sarahthehoff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/25/20
4/5
Excellent podcast with varied guests and topics. Adam’s response to every other question is “that’s interesting” which feels repetitive.
Ashhfersure via Apple Podcasts · France · 06/29/20
While this may primarily be targeted at industry professionals, this is actually one of the more engaging drinka-themed podcasts out there.The chemistry of the presenters makes the discussion really enjoyable, and the topics are approachable for an ‘enthusiastic outsider’ as well.

Well-produced and intelligent

In season 2 episode 10, the description of making vermouth at home gets cut off - any chance of a corrected upload?
Nelsie-Boy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/31/20
Good info knowledge but of the few talks I heard, seemed very much like a constant ranting and complaints about the wider wine world without much evidence or support to back up issues.
Shubbydooo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/20
...but the occasional foul-language rant (usually on the NY end) detracts from the show’s value. I’d rather give my full attention to the content. Bottom line, though, is that the sincerity and passion of both moderators comes through...and that’s a good thing.
