The Olympics were definitely different than usual this year with empty stadiums and athletes taking wellness days…. but, one thing that hasn’t changed is the stark contrast in uniform between the men and women’s teams in certain sports. What IS that about?! And is anyone doing anything about it? We speculate on the topic while sipping on a self-proclaimed SILVER chardonnay!
We thought we’d kick this year off with a book club to keep us busy during the winter months. And, boy do we have a spectrum of subjects we covered! A little bit of baby how-to, combined with some wine education, and sprinkled with an autobiography of a fave actor – we think you’ll find one of your future reads in this episode! We paired this episode with a commemorative wine in honor of one of the greatest literary pieces of all time, Moby Dick. Grab a glass to sip along and find your next book!
Shit.has.literally.hit.the.fan. These days we feel like we are living a scene from the movie Contagion, but, unfortunately, the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic is a harsh reality. As we do the right thing and practice social distancing, we wanted to truly understand the scope of the disease and our small, yet hugely impactful part in “flattening the curve.” It’s time to make sure your wine rack is full and hunker down for the long haul as we all become prisoners in our own homes for our own health and the greater good. Time to grab a glass and join us as we discuss current reality or what feels like the twilight zone! The Prisoner red blend is the perfect fit for this episode and our self-quarantine! #staythefuckhome
Some call it the “Magnificent Mile” for wine growing, but what is really behind all the fuss of the 45th parallel? This invisible line runs halfway between the equator and the North Pole, where some of the best wines of the world are grown. We delve into the fascination of this geographical prominence – is it really magical or is there more to it? – all while drinking a namesake wine coming from the Rhône valley itself, which is knee-deep in those 45 degrees of latitude.
