On Today’s episode we have a fascinating conversation with Sam Povey, a celebrated WSET wine educator hailing from London's Bermondsey School. Named one of Harper's 30 under 30, Sam is renowned for his captivating Instagram stories @Sampovey.wine. We dive into the historical intrigue of Burgundy, where a 14th-century duke's ingenious scheme led to the dominance of Pinot Noir. But the real gem of this episode is Sam's personal odyssey, as he trades up from everyday supermarket wines to the world's most exquisite bottles. You'll hear about unique wines like the full-bodied Egri Bikaver from Hungary, New Zealand's top Pinot Noir producers, and Bordeaux's hidden treasures. Prepare to be inspired and educated!
