Wow! It’s our Centennial! The 100th DBP episode!! We are celebrating this most momentous occasion with a memorable wine from our DBP trip to Napa Valley, while reflecting on our growth since our beginnings. How have our wine tastes evolved, and what have been our most favorite episodes, and most surprising wines we’ve tasted? We reflect on all of this and more as we journey back 100 episodes and more than 100 wines!! Pop open something yummy and celebrate along with us!
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
Now it’s time for a recap of our time in Napa Valley. From tasting rooms to vineyards, we had a variety of experiences through a range of widely accessible wines to limited productions! As we recount the rest of our first DBP trip to the motherland, we share everything from the Summer Release Event at Round Pond to a one-on-one tasting at the world-class Joseph Phelps with a spectacular view of their vineyards. Do as the “napkins” (aka, people from Napa) do, pour a glass and get transported to the DBP motherland!

“I’m a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world!” Wait, hold up, we didn’t just travel back to 1997, but we ARE talking about the craze for people going plastic, or rather, under the knife! Of course, plastic surgery has its place, but is society that uncomfortable in their own skin to need to nip and tuck everywhere? And at what point does it become an addiction? From brows to boobs to butts, cosmetic surgery can do just about anything. Are you into the idea of continually striving for perfection, or do you prefer Zero Manipulation, like the name of our wine? Listen in as we discuss the rise of the implant, all while drinking this unfined and unfiltered California blend!
