In this episode, Devi chats with Dave Adams and Sandi Everingham of the Decanted podcast. Life partners, creative professionals and co-hosts of Dacanted, Dave Adams and Sandi Everingham have a passion for wine adventure, especially in their home state of Washington. The state is the second largest producer of wine in the United States with close to 1000 wineries and a terroir that one winemaker dubbed, “a Disneyland for grape growing.” It’s a tough job to try them all, but they are willing to do the grueling work. Dave and Sandi have created an entertaining and educational hybrid show that features interviews with notable winemakers in a narrative storytelling style. Listeners will also learn from wine educators, hear about industry events and wine travel destinations. They recently became students of the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) so while they learn, you will too. Dave is in the UX biz for a gigantic Borg machine, former basement beer brewer, old-timey impressionist and enjoys hearing the sound of his own voice. Sandi herds artistic cats in the game industry, an artist and professional coach. Unsurprisingly, her favorite toy as a child was a tape recorder.
