Episode #642 – A Big Pain in the Glass and Other Surprising Wine News Featuring Wes Hagen!

However, if you have a tough time finding your favorite wine, the blame may be the glass and NOT the grape! It’s true, wine bottles are in desperately short supply and you can blame it on that dastardly supply chain debacle. So what’s the story Morning Glory?

For wine wisdom on tap, there’s no one better to turn to than the amazing Wes Hagen; winemaker, scholar, writer, wine ambassador, AVA author and much more.
