Would it surprise you to learn that there’ve been some incredible wine heists – ranging from hundreds of thousands to over a million dollars worth of the liquid libation? Yours truly could not believe how seemingly common it is for these types of raids, let alone the frequency (hitting the same place twice?!) and lack of security when retail shops and restaurants alike boast some of the highest quality and priced wines in the world. In the glass, we travel to Italy’s boot, and feel like “the grape thieves” drinking this delicious and affordable wine.
We thought we would kick the New Year off with a very special treat. One that we were thrilled to experience personally, and to be able to bring to you – the distinct honor of interviewing the Queen and Godmother of Wine herself, Karen MacNeil, on her newly released third edition of the Wine Bible. Grab a drink and listen in!
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!
If you’re anything like us, we LOVE our sweets…almost as much as we love our wine! This episode, we interview Lindsey, a professionally trained baking and pastry arts chef, to learn more about the magical world of delicious baked goods. She shared her passion for this creative art, her journey to becoming a pastry chef, the ups and downs of the dessert industry, and even some take-home tips for us! Oh, and did we mention she just happens to be the twin of our DBP host, Jamie?! An episode so sweet and scintillating, there’s no question you’ll want a glass of wine and your favorite delicious treat to listen in with us!
In this special episode, we interview Grant, Tasting Gallery Lead at family-owned Jessup Cellars in Napa Valley. Grant walks us through the philosophy of their winemaking practices, their belief in hospitality, and what makes their wine special. He also takes us on a journey through his own path from growing up in Napa to where he is now. As we get a more intimate look into the friendly Jessup Cellars and the lengths they will go to please their customers (flying to your home for your own personal wine tasting!), we sip on Table for Four, one of Jessup’s flagship wines. So grab a glass and listen in for a treat. As Grant says, “Every glass is an adventure!” and we can guarantee this one is!
