This episode is my first episode ever, when I am talking to someone who is NOT in the wine industry, but knows far more about a wine topic than I do: Fine wine investment. I am talking with John Jackson, aka Attorney Somm (on youtube and Instagram), and certainly has a few things to say regarding buying wine to either drink further down the line, or to sell. So if you have ever wondered where to start, what to buy, how much to buy, then this episode might be worth listening to.

Don't forget there is a competition running, to with a virtual wine tasting, hosted by me (open to listens all over the world). More details at the bottom.*
