Ep32: SOMM: The Experience

Your DBP hosts had a memorable evening with the stars! Well, sort of! Last week we had the opportunity of a lifetime to attend the Chicago premiere of SOMM3, the third installment of the documentary series which has brought to light some unique aspects of the wine world. The film brings back some of our favorite folks from the earlier films – and allowed us to take a peek into some private tastings with some of the wine world’s most prestigious peeps: Fred Dame, Jancis Robinson, and Steven Spurrier. As we pop open a bottle from one of the vineyards which took down the French wines in 1976 and in honor of Dame’s “a-ha” wine, hear our thoughts on the film, our “a-ha” wines – including those of the movie’s director Jason, Dustin, and D’Lynn’s which we learned from the screening’s live Q&A session. So much fun and can’t wait to do our own blind tasting!

Ep26: California Dreamin’

It all started as a dream out west, where “hicks from the sticks” had a passion for wine but without a platform to stand on. What better way to celebrate our podcast’s 6-month-versary than with an iconic wine and topic that literally brought the great USA into the international wine game?! Popping a bottle of Château Montelena’s Chardonnay, we talk about the 1976 Paris Wine Tasting (aka, the Judgment of Paris) where Californian and French wines went head to head in a blind tasting with a shocking outcome. For an entertaining spin on it, check out the movie Bottle Shock and then listen in as we discuss fact versus fiction about the movie and this historic wine moment! Cheers to Napa’s magnificent triumph!
