Ep40: Assaults on Healthcare Workers: A Shocking Realization

O. M. G. Not only does this describe our wine pairing for this episode, but it also sums up our feelings about recent news! The media has highlighted some recent attacks on healthcare workers – as it should – and we’re shocked by some of the motives behind these attacks and the outcomes! Although healthcare workers are supposed to keep patients safe…who’s keeping them safe? How can they be expected to do their jobs without proper safety and security precautions on work premises? In this episode, we mention a few closer-to-home events that have played out like Grey’s Anatomy episodes, and talk about what more can and should be done to prevent more events like these. Make sure you’ve got a glass of wine in hand when you listen to this one!

Ep39: The Chronic Conundrum

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware of a recreational vice that’s quickly becoming one of the nation’s favorites. And no, it’s not wine (that’s definitely our favorite!), but marijuana (aka “the chronic” among many aliases). The marijuana craze has been swiftly sweeping the country, with the number of states legalizing the drug for both medicinal and recreational purposes increasing annually. In this episode we discuss the pros and cons of marijuana legalization, touching on everything from economics, safety, and even how it may impact the wine industry! You may leave this episode with a stronger sense of where you stand on the topic, or it may drive you deeper into the Chronic Conundrum! So grab a bottle of Purple Paradise by Chronic Cellars (yes, that is pure wine), tune in and decide for yourself!

Ep38: Be Kind, Be Lovely

Who knew there was a day – no, actually a week! – dedicated to being a good person? This episode, we reflect on what we can do to make the world a kinder place, by performing and celebrating random acts of kindness. In a world that sometimes seems to hide behind screens, there are still so many ways to make a difference, to be kind, and be lovely to one another. The perfect wine to pair with this topic comes from B. Lovely in Washington, where we fantasize about an action movie featuring exploding vines! Tune in, drink up, be kind, and let’s get the movement going.

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!

Ep29: Bone Jolly for Beaujolais

Happy Beaujolais Nouveau Day DBPeeps!! In honor of the official release day for Beaujolais Nouveau, we wanted to revisit this holiday and what it’s all about. What is this Beaujolais we speak of and why is it so special that this youngin’ of a wine deserves its own festival? Could be because it’s a great transition to red for our white wine drinking friends! Listen in to learn how it came to be that the first harvest of the Beaujolais crop across France gained its own holiday. We couldn’t get our hands on Beaujolais Nouveau before its release, so you’ll just have to “suffer” through our TWO Beaujolais/gamay noir wines we’re drinking this episode. It’s go time….it’s Beaujolais Nouveau time! This could be the perfect wine for Thanksgiving. Now pass the wine, bitches!
