Sommelier-founded wine clubs have proliferated over the last half-decade, as have wine clubs more generally. Adam, Joanna, and Zach discuss what it is that consumers hope to get out of these wine clubs, and whether or not they're distinct from other online wine clubs. Then, Zach speaks with master sommelier Ian Cauble, founder of SommSelect and one of the stars of the movie Somm about his career and unexpected celebrity. Finally, we debut a new feature on the Friday podcast as Adam, Joanna, and Zach try Cacti for the first time.
