    Ep 200 - This is Not Goodbye, it's See You Later

    03/01/2020 Duração: 17min

    This week we hit our 200th episode which is a huge milestone for us. We've made the decision to end Weekly Wine Show. It's a big decision and in this episode we reflect on our past four years and talk about what is next for us. In this episode we discuss: Why did we start Weekly Wine Show? One of the main reasons was we wanted to expand our knowledge of wine and thought a podcast was an interesting format for that learning. Did we accomplish what we wanted? Yes, we've learned so much and made so many connections through the podcast. This helped us lay the foundation we needed for what is next. Why are we stopping now? We've been putting out content non-stop for almost four years and it's time for a little break Also, we originally started out this podcast to help beginners like us but we can no longer call ourselves beginners.

We've tried a couple wine clubs or club-like retailers and were not thrilled but over the last year we've been testing out Naked Wines. If you've wondered whether a wine club could be valuable and worthwhile, Naked Wines might be your answer. SPOILER ALERT: At the end of this episode, we're going to share an offer from Naked Wines that they give its members to share the service. You'll get a big discount on wine and we get a little bit too if you sign up, so feel free to consider this episode like advertising. That being said, if you've listened to Weekly Wine Show for any length of time, you know we have only accepted advertisements for a couple of episodes. We're extremely picky about what brands we represent and we need to be willing to spend our own money on that item or service if there's a chance our words would influence others to do the same. And in fact, over
