This episode I am joined by the incredibly knowledgable Certified Sommelier Amanda McCrossin who has become a real authority on Napa Valley. After many years working at Press Restaurant (The world's largest Napa Valley wine list) and visiting a different Napa Valley winery each day, she now shares her passions through her Youtube channel and Instagram SommVivant. She's also the co-host of the podcast Wine Access Unfiltered. You've guessed it, we are talking all things NAPA!
