Muscat is a grape that Jason talks about on this podcast.
You are a person that downloads and listens to his tutelage.
Tutelage is a funny word if you pronounce it like it's a French winemaking technique.
All of these things are relevant. Why? The secrets are on Orion's Belt.
MUSCAT PODCAST ZIGGA ZIG AH!

The Beqaa Valley, also known as the Bekaa Valley and, occasionally, The Phoenician Mother Lovin' Pimp Zone, just so happens to be the best spot for wine in all of the Middle East. As long as you don't mind military struggles, religious infighting, and the occasional bunker buster or tank near your wine tasting room, then you should be ready to go.
Listen to this podcast with some mezze and it'll be less falawful. Or just listen to it regardless. But. . .really listen. Not everyone makes wine in the safely golden hills of Napa. Some toil amidst the conflict.
And so we toil to bring you their stories. So pop your Merwah and let's get to the learning. HEEYAHHH!

Macabeo, or Viura if ya nasty, is a handy little white grape from the North of Spain and the South of France. Mostly.
One-third of the 'Cava Girls Trio' (a Motown band made up of three wine grapes, they can't sing but man, what a concept, eh?!), this grape felt like it deserved its own stand-alone episode (we'll see).
On this new dose of audio adrenaline (the experience you get from listening to W4SH, not the Christian band), Jason takes you into a dreamscape you didn't even know your psyche was developing all surrounding the Macabeo grape. Enjoy this with ya homeboys. Enjoy this with ya shady ladies. Enjoy this with ya shnozzchompers (you know who they are).

What do you call a fly that won't stop buzzing around Guatama Buddha? A Buddha pest. What do you call it when someone checks out someone's butt and decides it's not for them? A Booty Passed. What do you call the capital of Hungary? Budapest.
What do these things all have in common? Find out (maybe), on this episode of Wine for Sophisticated Homies. The info here is straight up royal, and we'd love nothing more than for you to send your most fertile women to listen to every, marvelous moment.
We teach you all the Hungarian wine stuff. And who doesn't love that?! You know who doesn't love that? Extremists. And uh...pacifists. And uh, probably, also, like, messaging board moderators. So listen to this podcast and find your social status immediately improved. If you don't listen, I'm going to pop this balloon that I painted a really sad face onto...and that's the LAST THING THAT ANYBODY WANTS!!!
