Have you ever wished there was a rap out there listing all of the 1st through 5th growths from Bordeaux? Well now there is.
Ben is on vacation and Jason is bored...and with no one there to tell Jason he can't rap...he tries to rap. Use this if you're studying Bordeaux or if you just need to laugh homies. (Note: technically Jason went old school and listed Chateau Dubignon which no longer exists as it was absorbed by Chateau Malescot St. Exupery...but, rappers stretch the truth, what do you know about the rap game? Nothing.)

Well then this is the podcast for you. Put down those stuffy wine tomes and novels and listen in for an enjoyable episode about glittery wine. If you don't laugh, we give you permission to make a frowny face. If you do laugh...well...duh. We're hilarious.
