Radio Imbibe is the audio home of Imbibe magazine. In each episode, we dive into liquid culture, exploring the people, places, and flavors of the drinkscape through conversations about cocktails, coffee, beer, spirits, and wine.

In the summer of 2020, wine educator and enthusiast George W.C. Walker III made a big move from Michigan to step into the role of assistant director of operations at Wade Cellars, the Napa Valley winery opened by NBA champion Dwyane Wade. We featured Walker as a Person to Watch in our Imbibe 75 issue earlier this year, and for this episode, we check in on how he’s settled into his role at Wade Cellars; his experiences as winemakers dealing with California’s wildfire season; and the wines he’s sipping this summer.
