Ep50: Evolution of an Epidemic

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!

Ep29: Bone Jolly for Beaujolais

Happy Beaujolais Nouveau Day DBPeeps!! In honor of the official release day for Beaujolais Nouveau, we wanted to revisit this holiday and what it’s all about. What is this Beaujolais we speak of and why is it so special that this youngin’ of a wine deserves its own festival? Could be because it’s a great transition to red for our white wine drinking friends! Listen in to learn how it came to be that the first harvest of the Beaujolais crop across France gained its own holiday. We couldn’t get our hands on Beaujolais Nouveau before its release, so you’ll just have to “suffer” through our TWO Beaujolais/gamay noir wines we’re drinking this episode. It’s go time….it’s Beaujolais Nouveau time! This could be the perfect wine for Thanksgiving. Now pass the wine, bitches!

Ep19: All Hail The Almighty Serge Hochar: His Legendary Perseverance

The only way a great wine can get better is with an inspiring story to back it. With a philosophy of winemaking that transcends decades of war, a wine legend is born. In this episode, we explore the story of the Lebanese winery, Château Musar, and the man behind it all – Serge Hochar. Serge continued to pursue quality, organic winemaking throughout a 20 year civil war and only lost 2 vintages. With a delicious wine and a remarkable history – Serge and his legacy leave us awe-struck! Find a bottle of Musar Jeune (or, if you’re really ambitious, the elevated Château Musar) red blend and drink though this life-altering story with us! All Hail the Almighty Château Musar!
