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!
Better to give than to receive goes the saying, and we couldn’t agree more! This episode, we delve into the art of gift giving. What truly makes the perfect gift, and how have our outlooks on “presents!!” changed throughout the years? We share our favorites, and what we’ve tried in the past. Who knows, you might get some ideas for your next gift purchase! Treat yourself to a glass of wine and sit back and listen in!
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!
Who knew there was a day – no, actually a week! – dedicated to being a good person? This episode, we reflect on what we can do to make the world a kinder place, by performing and celebrating random acts of kindness. In a world that sometimes seems to hide behind screens, there are still so many ways to make a difference, to be kind, and be lovely to one another. The perfect wine to pair with this topic comes from B. Lovely in Washington, where we fantasize about an action movie featuring exploding vines! Tune in, drink up, be kind, and let’s get the movement going.
The holiday season is upon us!! And with all the joy this time of year brings, sometimes comes unwanted guests…and we are not referring to your Great Aunt Kathy who shows up unannounced with a suitcase and some fruitcake…we are talking about STRESS! This episode, we chat holiday stressors and tactics to make the best of this festive time. How can we escape the holiday blues and focus on the “reason for the season,” appreciating all the pleasures that comes with spending time with loved ones and the spirit of giving. We have lots of helpful tips to keep you merry and bright all season long! Of course, wine helps – so pour yourself a glass and drink along with us! Escape is the name of the game as we sip on PAXIS Red Blend, the winemaker’s expression of a way to escape from the stress of the world and appreciate the pleasure a great wine can give. Happy Holidays DBPeeps!
