The Original Wine of the Month Club president Paul Kalemkiarian interviews Winemaker Antonio Maçanita. Antonio has a Cinderella winemaking history…the wines are very good. And ladies, a handsome Portuguese winemaker with an accent?! Not sure if he is single.


It really is too much fun around here.  You know I taste a lot a junky wine.  If they planted and fermented it, they’re going to bottle it!

But we don’t have to take it! I won’t anymore…(Do I sound mad?).

Take a look at this video and look for a promo code at the end….you’ll get 10% off everything!

The most common question I get is, “What is your favorite wine?”  The second most common question is, “What do you do with all the wines that you like but don’t feature?” 

Why doesn’t anyone ask, “Paul, what do you do with the wines you don’t like?”   So I answered my own question right here.
