Pair Bells Up Wines with “La Cheeserie!” THE Tony Kornheiser Gives Us a Shout-Out

Sportswriter for The Washington Post, ESPN personality (PTI | Pardon the Interruption), and Podcaster (The Tony Kornheiser Show), Tony Kornheiser has been a part of our life for a long time. A LOOOOOOONG time. Dave has listened to/watched him for as long as we’ve been together; I honestly cannot recall NOT hearing Tony’s voice in my house over the last 20 years.

He’s grown on me (Sara) too. Sort of like how Dave did: like a fungus. The guy can be pretty hilarious actually.

So imagine my surprise when Dave bounced into the kitchen this morning having just listened to Tony’s podcast today and said, “Listen to this!”

Yep. You guessed it. Dave, a longtime “little” (Tony Fan) wrote in upon hearing Tony wax poetic about a future Oregon golfing trip, described our winery, and invited Tony to come in for a tasting.

On the Monday, May 11, 2020 show, “A wop bop a loo bop a wop bam boom!” Tony reads Dave’s email at the 4 minute mark.

I daresay, this might be the happiest I have EVER seen Dave.


Happy listening, and THANK YOU MR. TONY!!!!!
