Everything You Need to Know About Tuning the Vine

Tuning the VineWhen I first heard about Tuning the Vine I can’t say that I loved the name or understood the concept. But the name definitely stuck, even if it wasn’t for the right reasons! But their new representative contacted me and made it all make sense in 10 seconds – an inner city wine route. Well why didn’t they just say so!?!
