With the leaves changing into vibrant colors and a fresh crispness in the air, fall has arrived! And so have the festivities that come with it! This episode we have a laid-back chat about favorite fall activities – from apple picking to cider doughnuts (including Jamie’s culinary adventure!), we get into what makes this season truly a ball! We’ve paired a late harvest Riesling to commemorate this time of year, which will go perfectly with your delicious fall treats. Time to harvest yourself a glass (or mug!) of something spiked and enjoy!
Trick or Treat, smell our feet, give us something good to eat! We’re known for our love of wine, but we also have quite the sweet tooth – teeth? – especially around Halloween. From pumpkin shaped Reese’s to candy corn (does anyone really like it?), all of us have our fave treats this time of year. We share some of ours, the story behind the beloved candy tradition, and the darker side of trick-or-treating…dare we say…poison?! Grab some candy, pick your poison (we sure did!) and listen in!
Black cat cross your path? Or perhaps you spot a spider on Halloween? Listen in to this DBP Special Release Halloween episode, as we discuss what these omens mean and other spooky superstitions while sipping on Omen Red Blend from the Sierra Foothills. We also get into the history behind Halloween traditions, like where Jack-O-Lanterns originated and why you might want to make sure you light a candle in yours this year! Turn your lights down, put your witch’s (aka crone’s) hat on, pop open a bottle, and get spooky with DBP!
