That is the question! It truly is for some of us who are in need of a furry friend, yet unsure if it is the right fit. This episode we delve in to the pros and cons of having a pet, as well as the different types of pets to consider (who knew a mouse could be a pet?)! Once you decide on a pet, we have tips on where to find your next best friend. This is a time when many of us are contemplating pet ownership (including one of us!), and we thought we’d bring the pet debate front and center. Why not listen in with a glass of one of your favorites and decide for yourself!
It’s spring and we are all stuck at home…so it’s the perfect time to get crackin’ on some Spring Cleaning! You’d be surprised at how many perks there are to decluttering and scrubbing…and we aren’t just talking a garage you can finally walk through or a shinier-than-thou tub. We discuss how cleaning your closet can actually have real health benefits like stress relief (and we all need that these days)! We also share our own cleaning battles and tips to tackle this spring, getting rid of grime one day at a time! Grab a glass and join us in our quest for tidiness!

We thought we’d bring it back to the basics and talk about one of the most important things we can do for our health…Sleep!! On the heels of Sleep Awareness Week, we discuss why catching those Zzzs is so important, the habits and practices that can improve our sleep quality, and offer tips & tricks to getting a good night’s sleep. We find out our sleep quirks that make us all unique…and if that glass of warm milk actually works. Grab a glass, your favorite blanket (weighted – maybe?), and snuggle into this episode!
Shit.has.literally.hit.the.fan. These days we feel like we are living a scene from the movie Contagion, but, unfortunately, the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic is a harsh reality. As we do the right thing and practice social distancing, we wanted to truly understand the scope of the disease and our small, yet hugely impactful part in “flattening the curve.” It’s time to make sure your wine rack is full and hunker down for the long haul as we all become prisoners in our own homes for our own health and the greater good. Time to grab a glass and join us as we discuss current reality or what feels like the twilight zone! The Prisoner red blend is the perfect fit for this episode and our self-quarantine! #staythefuckhome
February is American Heart Month and we’ve decided to go red in not just wine, but in heart health awareness. As the number one killer in the nation, heart disease can be preventable and we want to make sure you know how! Sipping on a delicious red wine made by a cardiologist (how cool is that!), we go through lifestyle tips to keep your ticker ticking, and what you need to know to keep yourself and your family healthy. You’d be surprised at what matters – especially for women! So this month, think more than just candy hearts and GO RED! #ourhearts

It’s a new year and time for a fresh start on all things wellness! January in the gym is always the busiest time…but this year brings us more unique options that keep us out of the gym and fitter than ever! From virtual classes to the latest in boutique studio workouts, this year is all about breaking the fitness mold. We talk the hottest (and we don’t just mean sweatiest!) in fitness trends, and even touch on what’s new in the nutrition world. FitVine Pinot Noir is the absolute perfect pairing for us health conscious wine drinkers – grab a glass (after your workout, of course!) and listen in!
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!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Eye Cream?! Ever feel like you need a brighter eye look? Or perhaps you are just interested in a little anti-aging?

Are you one of those people that needs coffee to get through the day (and, perhaps, ends it with wine)? Have you ever thought, is this really my fourth cup of coffee and it’s only noon? We’re sure you’ve questioned how much is too much – just like us. In this episode, we learn not all caffeine is created equally and delve into the health benefits and risks of drinking coffee or other caffeinated beverages. So even if you’re an energy drink junkie, we’ve got news for you, too! Listen in as we discuss our other favorite beverage, as we kick it up a notch by pairing our topic with not only wine, but espresso too!
Nobody likes to fail, but the US may be dubbed as a failure of one of the biggest public health achievements in our history. How, you ask? Not even halfway through the year, this country is already seeing the greatest number of measles cases in over 25 years – with more than 700 confirmed cases across 22 states as of the date of recording! As anti-vaxxers become more prevalent, with pockets of non-immunized communities popping up around the country, our most vulnerable are at risk. Even a small dip in immunity of the nation’s population can make this very contagious disease a threat. A topic that demands attention, yours truly delve into the details behind the spread of this potentially fatal virus and talk about the propaganda put out there…it’s absolutely terrifying!! As we discuss the evolution of this potential epidemic, we thought what better to sip on than Evolution White Wine from Oregon…grab a glass and listen in!
