The Wine Vault

Hosted ByRob Dern, Scott Feil, and Becky Dern

The Wine Vault is a podcast where the focus is on wine and irreverence, but not necessarily in that order. So join us and learn a little about wine, a little about culture, and have a laugh, here on The Wine Vault.

Welcome to The Wine Vault, starring Rob Dern, Scott Feil, and Becky Dern!

Our show began in January of 2017, releasing every week on Sunday nights.  We approach the world of wine a bit differently, with a bit of knowledge, no pretension (well, maybe a little), and a lot of irreverence.  We review wines from around the world, from aged classics to wines from a gas station.  So, if you love wine, or simply love a good time, join us and share in the experience.  Cheers!

Content details: This show sometimes contains adult language/themes.
