It’s the most wonderful time of the year and the season of gifting! We think the perfect gift is the purple drink of the gods, but know that it can be intimidating to select the perfect bottle of wine for your recipient. This episode we give you tips on how to choose the right bottle. If that’s not enough, we have plenty of suggestions for wine-related presents to give as well. From your novice wine drinker in the family to your wine-o best friend who is always sniffing and slurping their wine, we have an idea for everyone. Get festive with a glass and listen in!
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!
The day of love is upon us and we thought we’d honor it with a tribute to the sensual substances named after the goddess of love herself, Aphrodite. Wine and chocolate seem like a titillating duo to woo your sweetheart any day, but there may be more creative ways to boost your libido (avocado, anyone?). We discuss several aphrodisiacs, their stimulating history, and the science behind their arousing properties. Sipping on the tempting red blend, Sexual Chocolate, we get in the mood for this most romantic day! #eatsomethingsexy
If you’re anything like us, we LOVE our sweets…almost as much as we love our wine! This episode, we interview Lindsey, a professionally trained baking and pastry arts chef, to learn more about the magical world of delicious baked goods. She shared her passion for this creative art, her journey to becoming a pastry chef, the ups and downs of the dessert industry, and even some take-home tips for us! Oh, and did we mention she just happens to be the twin of our DBP host, Jamie?! An episode so sweet and scintillating, there’s no question you’ll want a glass of wine and your favorite delicious treat to listen in with us!
Happy National Wine & Cheese Day! We couldn’t let this day pass without lending a DBP hand in an attempt to answer the wine-drinker’s million dollar question – what wine should I pair with my food (or vice versa)?! Creating the ideal pairing isn’t quite rocket science, but it’s not always easy either. In this episode we share some tips and tricks for putting together a great pairing. There are certainly some guiding principles to make your mouth do a little happy dance as you sip and nibble, but remember: taste is subjective. We pop open a bottle of Savor Collective to accompany our savory discussion that certainly makes us salivate. Cheers!
