About Us

The Grape Nation is your weekly wine journey…where, we will enlighten, inspire, and motivate the listener to enjoy and drink more wine. WE BRING WINE TO THE PEOPLE! The show will take a straightforward; “un-snobby” approach to wine through usable information and guest experts in their field. Each week we will delve into a relevant wine topic, speak with a wine notable, and ask our guest to answer our weekly “Wine List”. We will taste, and discuss a different wine on-air each week and invite our listeners to taste with us. Our listeners will be kept up to date with the best wine happenings with our weekly event calendar.
