Episode 199 – Harmony on the Vine: Wine is Like Music Jazz Piano Tasting with Barry Aiken Episode Episode 199 – Harmony on the Vine: Wine is Like Music Jazz Piano Tasting with Barry Aiken Episode

In this episode, Shelley and Phil, as well as you the listener, are treated to a true music creator, inspired by each wine we’re tasting through. Continuing the idea that Phil Mershon shared with us, in this episode, we explore the intersection of wine and music as Barry Aiken lays down a symphony of sound based on what he’s tasting. Barry is no one trick pony. He can play it all! In this episode, we talk music, jazz, blues and of course, wine. He even knocks out a deep cut Billy Joel tune, out of the blue! Grab one of these wines or your own, sit back and enjoy this one. #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTIme! #Cheersing #WineIsLikeMusic #EasterEgg
