Ep55: Caffeinated Nation

Are you one of those people that needs coffee to get  through the day (and, perhaps, ends it with wine)? Have you ever thought, is this really my fourth cup of coffee and it’s only noon? We’re sure you’ve questioned how much is too much – just like us. In this episode, we learn not all caffeine is created equally and delve into the health benefits and risks of drinking coffee or other caffeinated beverages. So even if you’re an energy drink junkie, we’ve got news for you, too! Listen in as we discuss our other favorite beverage, as we kick it up a notch by pairing our topic with not only wine, but espresso too!

Ep53: Charity Gone South

In the spirit of giving and helping the needy, donating old or “out of style” clothing always makes us feel charitable. But where do your clothes really go? What if we told you as far away as to Africa?! And that they were actually being sold, not given away! Wake up and smell the cash! We did, and decided to share with you all we’ve learned about our nation’s approach to clothing donation in this episode – everything from “fast fashion” to what you should absolutely never do with your old clothes! We paired this topic with Purple Heart Red Wine, a charitable wine to discuss a charitable (or maybe not, we will let you decide!) topic!

Ep52: DBP Travels: A Sonoma Success

Coming at you live from DBP’s motherland, California, this episode was recorded in our hotel after a long, delicious day of wine tasting through Sonoma County. After visiting four wineries – from small and rustic to a chateau with beautiful gardens – we share little tidbits from along the journey with history and fun facts, try to whittle down our list of favorites from the day, and recommend some stops for wine country travelers. Highlighted by meeting a couple of the winemakers themselves and capping off our day with chocolate and a little “S&M,” the Sonoma leg of our tour was a blast! According to the Californians, “You can drink whatever you want, as long as you drink wine.” Cheers!

Ep50: Evolution of an Epidemic

Nobody likes to fail, but the US may be dubbed as a failure of one of the biggest public health achievements in our history. How, you ask? Not even halfway through the year, this country is already seeing the greatest number of measles cases in over 25 years – with more than 700 confirmed cases across 22 states as of the date of recording! As anti-vaxxers become more prevalent, with pockets of non-immunized communities popping up around the country, our most vulnerable are at risk. Even a small dip in immunity of the nation’s population can make this very contagious disease a threat. A topic that demands attention, yours truly delve into the details behind the spread of this potentially fatal virus and talk about the propaganda put out there…it’s absolutely terrifying!! As we discuss the evolution of this potential epidemic, we thought what better to sip on than Evolution White Wine from Oregon…grab a glass and listen in!

Ep48: Celebrity Wines: Yay or Nay?

What do you do when you are famous and have more money than God? Buy a winery, of course! More and more, we have been seeing wine with a celebrity behind the label. Some make it pretty obvious that they are the proprietor of the winery (i.e., ACDC’s Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon), while others we would have no idea! With a bottle of 2016 Uncaged Chardonnay by Z. Alexander Brown (or Zac Brown – who knew?!), we get into whether or not celebrities should be taken seriously as winemakers, and who of the ‘who’s who’ is making wine. Is it a Yay or Nay? You might have to try yourself to find out, so grab a bottle of your fave celeb’s wine and listen in!

Ep47: Under the Knife

“I’m a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world!” Wait, hold up, we didn’t just travel back to 1997, but we ARE talking about the craze for people going plastic, or rather, under the knife! Of course, plastic surgery has its place, but is society that uncomfortable in their own skin to need to nip and tuck everywhere? And at what point does it become an addiction? From brows to boobs to butts, cosmetic surgery can do just about anything. Are you into the idea of continually striving for perfection, or do you prefer Zero Manipulation, like the name of our wine? Listen in as we discuss the rise of the implant, all while drinking this unfined and unfiltered California blend!

We explore all types of enigmas – from hidden treasure to disappearing airplanes, even mysterious bird deaths! So put your detective hat on, pour yourself a glass, and listen in! Who knows, maybe you can find the missing piece of the puzzle to uncover the truth!

Ep44: Canada, Climates, and Cru

When you start messing with the fate of wine, your DBP hosts’ most-beloved beverage, you’ve caught our attention. Climate change is no joke and it’s definitely causing a stir for wine-growing regions, especially those niche regions. Will Canada be able to continue making their signature icewine? Will we have to say goodbye to our favorite familiar varietals and welcome lesser-known ones? Will new wine regions pop up that we could have never imagined (Russian wine, anyone)? We don’t know for sure, but we had fun hypothesizing what opportunities and potential changes may be in store. We are definitely not scientists, but we can for damn sure speculate on wine. And we got our hands on a rare treat – a red wine from the only desert in the middle of a country that is 50% frozen: Canada!
