Now airing between regular episodes of the VinePair Podcast, “Covid-19 Conversations” takes an inside look at how the Coronavirus crisis is impacting all areas of the alcohol business.

Through conversations with industry leaders across the country, this new segment will look toward the future of wine, spirits, and beer businesses, as well as illuminate paths forward for industry professionals and all of us affected by this unprecedented public health crisis.

In our first installment, Zach Geballe interviews Esther Mobley, wine critic at the San Francisco Chronicle, who fills us in on how Covid-19 is affecting the California wine industry and Bay Area restaurants and bars, as well as how government regulations on alcohol sales are being forced to change to ensure essential business continues.
