In this episode we chat with wine buyer and co-owner of The Real Wine Republic, RJ Judalena, about organic, sustainable and biodynamic wines. And yes, wine can be clean and delicious!
Background: The Real Wine Republic is the result of a labor of love over the last 10 years. Patti and RJ Judalena were inspired to open up a retail wine shop. Patti enrolled in the International Sommelier Guild wine program and earned Levels I & II Certificates from the International Sommelier Guild Wine Program, while RJ started his wine journey with the Court of Master Sommeliers. RJ & Patti now do the wine buying together and the best part of the job is bringing in products they know their customers will love.
The Real Wine Republic is the first and maybe only wine shop that focuses on Sustainable, Organic and Biodynamic wines in Minnesota. Check them out online or walk into the shop. They are so knowledgeable and the wines are tasty!
The Real Wine Republic also offers a wine club membership as well as amazing wine trips throughout the year; they offer something for all wine enthusiasts.
