Do the following titles ring a bell? The Goonies, Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire, Nine Months, Harry Potter, or Night at the Museum? If so, then you should also probably be familiar with name Chris Columbus who is the creative mind that wrote, directed or produced all of those movies (and in some cases played all three roles).

Aside from being the man behind these classic films, Chris also happens to be extremely charismatic and a self-described wine guy--but not a “wine bore”. If you’d like to know what Italian wines Chris is saving for special occasions or what California Chardonnays he likes to open on weekdays (other than his go-to Kistler Vineyards), be sure to listen to our exclusive interview with the man (man-enough, to drink rosé) himself.

With friends like Francis Ford Coppola and movie shoots in Italy, this podcast should not be missed. Cheers to Chris's down to earth approach to wine!
