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?!)
Spring into the new season with us as we transition from the big red wines of winter into the fresh, fruity, and crisp wines that call for warmer temps. This episode features 4 wines – 2 whites and 2 reds – we think welcome the changing weather. These wines remind us of how we dress this time of year: a light layer, nothing too heavy, while we say bye-bye to darker colors and hello to brighter ones! Listen in as we awaken our senses for spring with these affordable beauties!

WE’RE BACK!!!! And we are SO ready to drink with you!! Today we chit chat about what we’ve been up to the past couple months, and Jamie gives us the low down on the BIG life events she has experienced! To celebrate Jamie getting her wine MOJO back and coming full circle to sharing a bottle together, we pop open a Sonoma special, and reminisce about our trip to wine country. Tune in and join us for a celebratory comeback episode! Don’t forget the wine!
Are you living in a boomtown, or perhaps thinking of moving to one? While it may sound glamorous at first, there are some drawbacks to living in a boomtown. That being said, there are definitely some perks! We wanted to understand the history behind what makes people flock to a particular location, including the upsides and downsides. This episode we discuss the buzz behind booming cities such as Denver, Austin, and Seattle, and even touch on smaller ones that may become the next big thing! Press play to “explore” and sip along!
This episode we talk singularity, and we aren’t referring to the relationship type (although that’s what Sarah thought it meant)! Singularity refers to when technology will become uncontrollable and be irreversible. And if you’re like us and thought that was millenia away, you are likely wrong – it could be just a few years away! And here we thought Alexa was creepy…scared yet?! We discuss what type of AI is out there, what it means to us, and of course what Elon Musk thinks about all this. Are we ready to give up our jobs and potentially even our human race to robots?! You’ll need a glass of wine to wrap your head around this episode!
We thought we’d kick this year off with a book club to keep us busy during the winter months. And, boy do we have a spectrum of subjects we covered! A little bit of baby how-to, combined with some wine education, and sprinkled with an autobiography of a fave actor – we think you’ll find one of your future reads in this episode! We paired this episode with a commemorative wine in honor of one of the greatest literary pieces of all time, Moby Dick. Grab a glass to sip along and find your next book!
2020 was definitely one for the books, with pretty much everyone ready to slam the door on the year and start fresh with a new one. Since we didn’t think everyone wanted to relive the dark incidents that will brand 2020 for years to come, we decided to dedicate this episode to highlighting some of the more uplifting events of the year and share some of our personal triumphs and accomplishments. Pour yourself something fabulous to toast as we ring in the New Year and say BUH-BYE to 2020!
Just across the Adriatic Sea from Italy lies the small, yet stunningly beautiful country of Croatia. Besides the miles of crystal clear coastline and hundreds of gorgeous islands, there’s also wine! And lots of it! Unique to Croatia are several varietals of wine that you probably have never heard of, but are surprisingly delicious. Indigenous grapes like Graševina or Plavac Mali might be hard to pronounce, but not to drink. Grab a glass and take a trip with us across the world to sunny Croatia and explore their remarkable wine culture with us! A must try and a must listen!

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.

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!
