PDF | Link to Podcast

More than anything we here at Life Between the Vines promote wine education. Let's face it, wine is fascinating. The more you learn, the more you want to know. For the past several years we have run the Vino Lingo segment on our website along with many of our podcasts. The purpose is to give definitions of common and not-so-common wine terms as defined by the winemakers themselves. For this program we've compiled these terms taken from the last several months podcasts. Click on the link below to take a listen. Enjoy!
