    Would you consider announcing the wines you will be sampling on your next virtual tasting show so that we might taste along with the podcast? I think that would make it a REALLY interactive show.

    Listening to you and Rosina taste them made me want to drink along to see what you were tasting. You could post a list on your website so we could go out and get any/all of them to try along with you.

    Thank you so much for taking the intimidation out of wine tasting. I have loved your series of podcasts in Italy and with Rosina. Keep up the great work!

    Absolutely! Thank you for such kind words, Diane. That is the whole intention of this series of classes, so Rosina and I would be delighted to have you join us for the adventure!

    Warm regards,

    I love listening to the Food Philosophy podcast, but the sound quality on this episode made it really hard to hear what was going on. Rosina’s voice and the introductory music came through LOUD and clear, but I hardly know what you were saying. Could you up the volume on your mic for the next episode?

  • Jennifer Iannolo

    Thanks Lauren. The sound was created binaurally for this particular show, which means it’s best listened to on a headset (we were experimenting), but I’ll go back to regular stereo for the next one. Thank you for the feedback!
