Wine Blast Podcast!

Our Wine Blast podcast is about bringing wine to life with a smile, via interviews, provocative chat, travel, food, gentle bickering, giveaways, recipes, top tips, your questions and a certain amount of over-sharing.

Shortly after launching it became a top-10 US & UK podcast (Chartable: Apple, Food), and now sits well within the top 5% of podcast by downloads globally (Buzzcast), with listeners in more than 140 countries, and recommended in the likes of The Daily Telegraph, Evening Standard, Decanter, Wine Folly and Club Oenologique.

To date we’ve covered the big topics, from Burgundy to Bordeaux; tackled the big beasts, from Hugh Johnson to Sam Neill; and touched on burning issues from wildfires to wine allergies, how to make wine your career, even The Simpsons, magnum Jenga and which wine to have with your crisps or chips. It’s enough to drive you to drink…

‘Natural broadcasters [who] combine a fluent lightness of touch with a real dig for information.’ The Daily Telegraph

The show is for everyone, from wine pros to those who simply have an open mind, healthy thirst and fancy a laugh. It’s a wine podcast with a difference, given the upbeat format and the way we manage to find almost infinite ways to disagree about wine. And all in not much more time than it takes to polish off a bottle of Brunello.

You can find the podcast on your platform of choice (Apple podcast, Spotify, Google etc). When you do, please please please SUBSCRIBE and also leave a rating and review. It’s all for free and it will make our day!

‘Jubilantly buoyant and upbeat. Revel in its relatable, entertaining and light-hearted tone, with marital disputes over wine a given. Certain to be a hit.’ The Drinks Business

‘A complete tonic for the heart, mind and soul…and utter temptation for the tastebuds.’ Drinks Network

  • Paddy Bowerman is the most amazing producer, editor, drummer and all-round Renaissance man. That is all. Other than to say his wife Rosie is equally amazing. Superheroes the lot of them.
