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!

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!

As you join us for this slightly controversial chat, fill up your glass and sip along!
