Introduction to Episode

My guest today is wine expert Caroline Conner. In this episode, we discuss what wines you should drink and dispel some common wine myths. Listen to wine and dine with Caroline.

Podcast Episode Summary

Caroline is a young fiery American living in Lyon running her online wine business. We sat down in June and discussed many aspects of wine: growing, tasting, testing, drinking, and most notably – enjoying. 

We covered the difference between sulfites and tannins, where they are. The new label in France for “natural” wines. We note that most wine makers are farmers at heart, which goes to the heart of being sustainable and local. 

Caroline also wants to know, why are you keeping your wine? She instructs us to buy it, drink it, and enjoy it. We cover a dream Pinot Tour (Perhaps post-pandemic? Spendy as it may be?) Ultimately, she wants us to wine and dine and enjoy our damned wine.


“Good wine doesn’t have to be expensive.” 

“You can’t age most wine.” 

“Drink whatever you want.”
