It’s becoming a thing! Our Book Club that is! In our third installment of DBP Book Club, we bring you a potpourri of literary gems – from young adult drama to the story of chocolate conglomerates, we even threw in a motivational book to help us with the changing times. Once again, we swap stories through the pages all whilst sipping on a delightful red that lends well to this episode, it’s pretty much Textbook!
Itching for adventure but maybe getting on a plane is not feeling like the right move these days? A good ol’ campfire might be just what you need, and what better time to grab a backpack, hit the road, and find a secluded outdoor place to hang for awhile (or maybe just one night for some of us)! This episode, we explore the different ways you can camp out – or even glamp out – and get ideas for our next outdoor expedition. ‘Tis the season for tents, s’mores, and being one with nature – just don’t forget to add wine!
If you are a parent, time spent with your kids is the most precious gift of all time. But, everyone needs a break including, and especially, moms! This episode, we interview Mo, the mother of an awesome little dude, to learn how her life changed once she became a mother – a topic we think many can relate to. We delve into the stress of being a parent, how to prevent “mommy burnout” and tips to keep your self-identity outside of mom or dad. We’re sipping “Mommy’s Time Out” which was the perfect escape. So grab your own glass, take a break from the kids, and listen!
As the warm weather winds down, we share our top summer activities (just add wine!) and what makes it most special for us. We not only cover the best wines to drink in the summer, we also make sure that you’ll leave this episode with fun summer facts like did you know you can tell temperature through crickets?! Summer Water rosé keeps us hydrated in the heat as we bid farewell to our favorite season!
Wine in a can?! While it may sound outrageous, the new trend is to can our favorite beverage for convenience, portability, and because it’s the hip new thing. As more and more producers jump on the canned wine train, we have been asking ourselves if we should join this modern movement. So to get to the bottom of the can, so to speak, we decided to compare every aspect of canned vs bottled wine, from taste to cost. We grabbed a bottle and a can of pinot noir from one of the biggest entrepreneurs in the canned wine industry – Union Wine Company – for our taste test challenge. Is the can too good to be true? Or is it the perfect way for wine to be a part of all our adventures? Grab a bottle or can (or both!) and listen in to find out! #pinkiesdown
In this special episode, we interview Grant, Tasting Gallery Lead at family-owned Jessup Cellars in Napa Valley. Grant walks us through the philosophy of their winemaking practices, their belief in hospitality, and what makes their wine special. He also takes us on a journey through his own path from growing up in Napa to where he is now. As we get a more intimate look into the friendly Jessup Cellars and the lengths they will go to please their customers (flying to your home for your own personal wine tasting!), we sip on Table for Four, one of Jessup’s flagship wines. So grab a glass and listen in for a treat. As Grant says, “Every glass is an adventure!” and we can guarantee this one is!
