Ultimate Guide to Basic Wine Knowledge for Mother Runners


This is a guide to basic wine knowledge for mother runners disguised as a Run Lift Mom podcast interview with Jaco Vienings, Winemaker and Founder of the Grape Unknown wine education experiences.

Who is Jaco?

Jaco is a South African with a degree in winemaking. Making wine across the world, meeting unique wine personalities on the grape escape TV, and now starting Hartlam winery just outside Los Angeles has allowed Jaco the privilege, to gain invaluable experience.

As a winemaker and founder of the Grape Unknown, which offers virtual wine tastings club and online wine education, his mission is to bridge the gap between winemakers and wine consumers – by shutting down wine
intimidation and making wine more accessible and enjoyable to understand.
