It’s hard to imagine, but the wine app Vivino now has a whopping 8 million plus users around the globe and it’s meteoric growth seems unstoppable. So what happens when the companies leaders decide to use the gargantuan database to figure out what the world loves to drink? Find out as Host David Wilson goes behind the scenes of Vivino with the company’s founder and CEO Heimi Zachariassen. It’s an amazing discussion about an amazing app.

Also on this week’s show, David risks it all by doing a little custom blending for one of the hottest winemakers in the business, Adam Lazarre.
