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!

Ep46: Operation Varsity Blues

Aunt Becky did what?! If you’ve been paying attention the last couple weeks, a recent court filing named over 50 individuals who’re at the heart of a huge scandal rocking some of the US’s biggest college campuses, including two favorite TV moms. Whether it be correcting standardized test scores or faking athletic prowess, these two women and other wealthy families are being reviewed for their involvement. And it’s not just the parents; athletic directors, admissions counselors, and expert test takers are some of the other guilty parties. So what’s going to happen to these adults – who should know better! – and the students? Only time will tell, but “wealthy” doesn’t mean you can fly under the justice radar!

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!
