Word for Word #30 It’s wine time!
We have discussed wine words before on our blog (and many times after a long day of work), but this time, we talk all things wine on our podcast, Word for Word.
From the origins of slang and regionalisms to varietals and naming, as well as the many words used to describe the aromatics and taste of wines, there's a little something for everyone.
Plus, the team does some investigative work and puts their noses, palates and vocabulary to the test in a blind tasting.
And it wouldn’t be a Macquarie Dictionary podcast if we didn’t also talk a little bit about Aussie slang, particularly that around wine (or as it's more affectionately known, goon). Pour yourself a glass and let’s get started.
Join us as we explore our language: the ways we use it, the ways we abuse it, and the ways we ultimately change it.
