Criminal offenses in the name of wine?! It’s true, they do exist and there are quite a few. This episode we explore the lawless delinquents that have tarnished the world of wine – from silly offenses like a highway heist of wine (wait….what??!) to more negligent crimes that have caused serious and irreparable damage to winemakers and drinkers alike. You’ll need to have a drink with us as we review the baddest behaviors in the wine industry.
Somewhere in the midst of our wine debauchery, we had the pleasure of stumbling upon Birk O’Halloran, founder and winemaker of Iconic Wines. This episode, Birk joined us for a drink and an inside look on the story behind Iconic Wines. From their no “dogma-free” winemaking approach to the quintessential comic book heroes on every label, we not only learned a ton from Birk, but had a blast doing so! Anything delicious will pair well with this treat of an episode!
Check out Birk’s newest project, Rockwell Vermouth!

It only happens once every four years – or so we thought! 2020 is most definitely a leap year, and we thought we’d celebrate by drinking the infamous Frog’s Leap Merlot while chatting about the goings ons that occur on leap day. Is it lucky or unlucky? What if you are born on leap day? Why does it happen anyway?! We leap into this year and into our glasses, celebrating one more day this year!
Nobody likes to fail, but the US may be dubbed as a failure of one of the biggest public health achievements in our history. How, you ask? Not even halfway through the year, this country is already seeing the greatest number of measles cases in over 25 years – with more than 700 confirmed cases across 22 states as of the date of recording! As anti-vaxxers become more prevalent, with pockets of non-immunized communities popping up around the country, our most vulnerable are at risk. Even a small dip in immunity of the nation’s population can make this very contagious disease a threat. A topic that demands attention, yours truly delve into the details behind the spread of this potentially fatal virus and talk about the propaganda put out there…it’s absolutely terrifying!! As we discuss the evolution of this potential epidemic, we thought what better to sip on than Evolution White Wine from Oregon…grab a glass and listen in!

It’s that time of year! Time to celebrate and be merry! And we think that bubbly is a perfect pairing for your holiday and new year’s festivities! And you know who else does? The Queen, of course! This episode we pop open a bottle of Bollinger Champagne (the Queen’s fave!) and discuss the significance of this bubbly beverage with the British Royal family, the difference between sparkling wine and champagne, and what makes them all fun and fizzy! We also get into why we, and the rest of the world, are fascinated with the British Royal Family – and top it all off with what some of their Royal Christmas traditions are. Because, hey – it’s that time of year! Trust us – some will definitely surprise you! So grab a bottle of some Champs (or other sparkling wine of choice), pop that baby open, and get fancy with us!
