The Wine Show on 96.5 Inner FM 16th August 2020 – A Great listen.

The Wine Show on 96.5 Inner FM 16th August 2020 – LIVE every Sunday 9 am – 11 am (Melbourne, Australia) on Inner Fm.

Still social distancing all the guests joined us via Zoom or the phone.

This is one of my favourite shows of all time. The guests each bring an amazing amount of knowledge and passion for what they do. They make me look good simply by being themselves.

The Wine Show

The wine show has been on Inner FM for 30 years. The main host was Kim West (aka Harry From Heidelberg) who looked after the show until his retirement in 2018. It was then that I, Phil, got the call up to become one of the hosts.
