Ep30: The Hunter & The Stag

‘Tis the season for bolder red wines and deer hunting! In this episode we’re joined by avid huntsman, Adam, as we explore the ethos of the modern, ethical hunter. Delving into the drive behind the hunt, we discuss the hunter’s responsiblity to the environment, the animal, and the earth, and how the stigma associated with the sport is not reflective of a true huntsman. This isn’t some float off into the woods and have a bonfire type of deal; it requires skill and a specific mindset. Fittingly paired with St. Hubert’s “The Stag” Cabernet Sauvignon, this episode is one that’ll prove insightful for those unfamiliar with the hunting world.

The world could use some more positivity, and we know just the thing! In this episode, we’re joined by a special DBP guest and wine popper, Ellen, to talk about how we can reduce our footprints, but most importantly, what we can do to increase our handprint (and explain what that really is). Fittingly paired with the Winemaker’s Handprint Merlot from Meeker Vineyards, join us to learn some fun facts about wine tannins, what it means to be part of the Meeker Tribe, and how you can lend a helping hand to create a positive impact on the environment and world around you!
