Jeff Siegel, The Wine Curmudgeon, author of The Guide to Cheap Wine joined us to talk about drinking more for less. Jeff focuses on the wine most of us drink – cheap wine and has now written the ultimate guide to cheap wine. Jeff is someone who has made cheap wine his life’s work and isn’t embarrassed about the choice. Jef feels the wine industry tries to intimidate consumers instead of educating them. So in his writing  you won’t see winespeak, wine scores and ratings, or hoity-toity writing that implies that he’s better or cooler or neater than you are. Listen here
