The Mike Drop Moment Ep23: Wine, Stories, & The Family Business with Anthony Giglio

Anthony Giglio Wine Expert The Moth

I met Anthony Giglio five years ago through our mutual friends at Brooks Winery. While this isn’t a wine and wisdom episode where I pair with wine, I say, why not order up or grab a bottle of Brooks Wine if you can.

Grab some Pinot or Riesling or just grab whatever you’ve got — and turn up the volume. 

In this episode, we talk about storytelling, entertaining an audience, wine, saying “Yes, And” to opportunities that arise, and The Moth. Trust me you don’t want to miss the retelling of how we got the opportunity to do The Moth as well as the life-changing impact it had on his family.

Anthony has written for Food and Wine Magzine. He is the Wine Director of the uber-swanky Centurion lounge by American Express. He’s the writer of 11 books and has been featured in Esquire, Details, the Robb Report, the New York Times. 

He’s been on The Today Show and Food Network.  He’s a two-time speaker at The Moth  where he took audiences on an emotional journey through the relationships between fathers and sons.
