Episode 210 – Breaking Down Barriers in the Wine World with MJ Towler Episode 210 – Breaking Down Barriers in the Wine World with MJ Towler

For the second time in two weeks, we go without Shelley (which may explain the few added expletives), but the show must go on. And go on we do with MJ “Love, peace and hot grease” Towler! Many people know MJ because of The Black Guy Wine Experience podcast but has recently rebranded to the Beats Vines and Life podcast. In this episode we talk branding, sports and of course, wine, while tasting through some Syrah’s. Let’s do this! #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime! #Cheersing #HotGrease #ThankGodForRichFriends

Please check out all things MJ Towler by visiting https://blackwineguy.com and start listening to his, Beats Vines and Life, podcast if you haven’t already.
