Podcast offers insider perspective, tourism advice and resources for Sonoma wine tourists
Healdsburg, CA – Wine Road Podcast, a production of the Wine Road, celebrates its 100th episode today! The podcast, which meets the growing demand for travel information in podcast form and with the announcement of Sonoma County as the Wine Region of the year by Wine Enthusiast magazine, the interest in the region as a wine tourism destination has increased exponentially. The Wine Road podcast is hosted by Beth Costa, Executive Director of the Wine Road and Marcy Gordon, wine writer and Sonoma tourism expert.
Quietly started in 2016 on a whim by Costa and Gordon, the early podcasts were recorded at the Wine Road offices with microphones ordered from Amazon and edited with tips from YouTube videos. Today, the podcast has its own website and is recorded in Sebastopol at Threshold Studios with state-of-the-art microphones. Over the past four years, Costa and Gordon have become well-known in the travel podcast world having been featured speakers at the 2018 Podcast Movement, the world’s largest podcast conference, as well as winning a coveted Taste Award for Best Podcast at the 2018 TASTE AWARDS in Los Angeles. The duo and the podcast are again nominated for several awards in the 2020 TASTE AWARDS, which will be announced this March.
Each episode of the podcast features winemaker interviews, local events, restaurant recommendations, 3-day itineraries, and tips on planning a visit to wine country. It’s fun, fast paced, and a fan favorite of both first time and seasoned visitors to the region.
