Uncorked Podcast

Welcome to Uncorked, an insider's look at the wine industry from the Farella wine industry lawyers. Our goal is for this to be an intimate and informative podcast where we interview known personalities and key players in the wine industry.

In each episode, Farella lawyers and their guests bring the latest insights from California’s wine industry and beyond. We will look at the wine industry's past, present, and future from insiders who know the latest deals, developments, regulations, and so much more. We open a favorite bottle and settle in for a chat about all things grape to glass.

From our offices in the Napa Valley and in San Francisco, we invite you to uncork a bottle and join us.
