The average person knows fuck-all about wine, which is one of the reasons why it’s so intimidating to get into appreciating this Magic Juice we love so much. Enter Michael Juergens (also known as Michael Amon), whose book Drinking and Knowing Things demystifies wine with a punk rock approach. We also talk about how Michael introduced the country of Bhutan to growing wine grapes. Seriously. All this while sipping the amazing 2016 Boutique Winery Petite Sirah from Lake County, which is now available from Final Swirl for an indecent $12.
