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!
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!
We thought it was the perfect time to bring you the second installment of our DBP Book Club, when most of us are in need of a virtual journey. What better way to unplug and relax than with a glass of wine in one hand and a book in the other?! This episode we bring to you a collection of our most recent reads ranging from autobiographies to teen dramas. Grab a glass and listen in to find your next genre of escape!
We thought we’d bring it back to the basics and talk about one of the most important things we can do for our health…Sleep!! On the heels of Sleep Awareness Week, we discuss why catching those Zzzs is so important, the habits and practices that can improve our sleep quality, and offer tips & tricks to getting a good night’s sleep. We find out our sleep quirks that make us all unique…and if that glass of warm milk actually works. Grab a glass, your favorite blanket (weighted – maybe?), and snuggle into this episode!
We like to think that a wine glass in one hand and a good book in the other is the perfect pairing for a most relaxing evening! So to honor the literary counterpart to our favorite libation pasttime, we bring you the first DBP Book Club. In this episode, each of us takes you on a journey down the stories behind three of our favorite books (no spoiler alerts here!) – and it is quite the collection. If you are a bookworm or just looking for your next leisurely read while sipping a glass of vino, this is the episode for you!
From false walls and fake cobwebs to buried bottles, the vignerons of France came up with some pretty inventive ways to keep the Germans’ hands off their precious treasure: wine! Throughout World War II, the Germans invaded and pillaged the vineyards of their neighboring country, taking any and all wine they could get their hands on, especially the good shit! All of this has been captured in a fantasic book, called Wine & War, which Sarah read to bring us the deets. Whether you’re a history buff, a wine nerd, or just like to read, Wine & War is a fascinating story to immerse yourself!
Feeling a little disorganized? Well if you’re anything like your DBP hosts, we’re a little bit on the OCD side of cleaning. So when we learned about the KonMari method for cleaning we had to investigate what all the fuss was about! We crack open her method, discuss the madness, and propose some alternative cleaning methods we think you might like. Pop open a bottle of Momentos Reserva, and be prepared to start wondering whether all those mementos you’ve got in your house are a keep or thank and get rid of!

Your wealth should be measured by who’s in your community, not by what’s in your wallet. Learn about Dunbar’s number, join us for a mini-book club discussion of Sebastian Junger’s “Tribe: A Book on Homecoming and Belonging,” and hear how our society’s evolution has led us down a path of fewer interactions and meaningful relationships, creating more isolation. Quality over quantity, DBPeeps! As we pop open the 2015 Kith & Kin Cabernet Sauvignon, snuggle up with your favorite tribe member and listen in. #whatreallymatters
