We finally did it! Not only are we doing a vertical tasting this episode – trying 4 bottles of the same wine, each a different vintage – but, we are also breaking out our Coravin! Join us for this special wine experience, as we drink through Silverado Zinfandel from Napa Valley.
As it turns out, the Mitten State has more to offer than lakes, apples, and college football – Michigan is also home to several gorgeous wineries!! This episode we recount Sarah’s recent trip to Michigan Wine Country, which was a surprising first for this Michigander. Listen in to learn about the abundance of fruit – for vino and otherwise – that make up Michigan’s coastline, and even more importantly, how does the wine taste??!! Find out with us as we sip on a Gewurztraminer from Old Mission Peninsula, MI (who knew?!)

As you scroll through your favorite social media platform, have you thought about the truth behind the posts? Or how minute details are specially designed for your psyche? Social media may have started as a fun pastime, but has truly evolved into a significant player in American’s lives – and there is much more to it than meets the eye. This episode we try and pull the wool from our eyes, and discuss the reality behind the screen. Do people portray the truth or is social media just one big manipulation put out by tech nerds? Slow your scroll, grab a glass, and listen in to this important episode!
Oh, the many hats we wear! Have you taken a moment lately to count all the hats you wear in a given day? From spouse to parent to professional/employee, it can be overwhelming to think of the various roles we play in our daily lives. Most people actually never “check out” for the day, but simply change hats. This episode we talk about the balancing act we play with the several hats we wear and how to avoid truly becoming the “Mad Hatter.” So take a break and put on your wine-drinking hat!
In a world of noise and chaos, most of us are constantly searching for just a few moments of peace and quiet, and as the pandemonium around us gets louder, it becomes harder and harder to find that inner silence. Well, we may have found the perfect solution to get away from it all – float therapy! And we aren’t talking the root beer kind! This episode we interview Andy, the owner and founder of Float Milwaukee, a local float spa. Floating is a relaxation therapy in which one floats in a pod full of salt water, eliminating external stimuli and giving the body a reset. And there are several health benefits far more than just noise relief! Listen in and find out from Andy how floating may just be your newest way to unwind, rest, and rejuvenate! A glass of relaxing red pairs excellently with this episode!

Somewhere in the midst of our wine debauchery, we had the pleasure of stumbling upon Birk O’Halloran, founder and winemaker of Iconic Wines. This episode, Birk joined us for a drink and an inside look on the story behind Iconic Wines. From their no “dogma-free” winemaking approach to the quintessential comic book heroes on every label, we not only learned a ton from Birk, but had a blast doing so! Anything delicious will pair well with this treat of an episode!
Check out Birk’s newest project, Rockwell Vermouth!

Turn off the news and turn on DBP to break through the clouds and find some sunshine! Don’t forget to add wine!
Boobies…we got ’em, and we gotta take care of ’em! With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, we thought what better time to focus our conversation – and beverage – on the twins we’ve got on the front of our bodies. One in eight woman will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, a sobering statistic for sure. The good news is there are higher survival rates and technology that improves detection. Still, breast cancer is a scary thing, and we want to be sure our DBPeeps are informed and have a better understanding of how to support those affected. While drinking the Montes Twins red blend, we run through recent statistics surrounding breast cancer, preventive measures, symptoms, and resources that exist. So wear pink, pour a drink, and cheers to boobies!
