Ep60: Wine & War

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!

Ep33: Popping the Bubbly for Royalty

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!
