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!
4 years?! Time sure does fly when you are having fun…especially while drinking wine! This episode we break out the wines we picked up on our inaugural DBP visit to Sonoma at a charming winery in Carneros. We both chose the same wine, but different vintages in anticipation of popping them for a special occasion. Listen in as we celebrate our DBPversary, and reflect while enjoying two beauties from the same vineyard! Sip along, because it’s a celebration, bitches!
We finally did it! Not only are we doing a vertical tasting this episode – trying 4 bottles of the same wine, each a different vintage – but, we are also breaking out our Coravin! Join us for this special wine experience, as we drink through Silverado Zinfandel from Napa Valley.
Itching for adventure but maybe getting on a plane is not feeling like the right move these days? A good ol’ campfire might be just what you need, and what better time to grab a backpack, hit the road, and find a secluded outdoor place to hang for awhile (or maybe just one night for some of us)! This episode, we explore the different ways you can camp out – or even glamp out – and get ideas for our next outdoor expedition. ‘Tis the season for tents, s’mores, and being one with nature – just don’t forget to add wine!
What do you do when you have the case of the Mondays…and it’s not Monday?? In a time when most of us are living a perpetual Groundhog Day, we thought we’d bring you some mood boosting ideas to keep your spirits high and your step light. From self-pampering to visiting the happiest place on earth from the comfort of your couch, there are plenty of options to put a smile on your face. Turn off the news and turn on DBP to break through the clouds and find some sunshine! Don’t forget to add wine!
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
We like to think that a wine glass in one hand and a good book in the other is the perfect pairing for a most relaxing evening! So to honor the literary counterpart to our favorite libation pasttime, we bring you the first DBP Book Club. In this episode, each of us takes you on a journey down the stories behind three of our favorite books (no spoiler alerts here!) – and it is quite the collection. If you are a bookworm or just looking for your next leisurely read while sipping a glass of vino, this is the episode for you!
If you are a parent, time spent with your kids is the most precious gift of all time. But, everyone needs a break including, and especially, moms! This episode, we interview Mo, the mother of an awesome little dude, to learn how her life changed once she became a mother – a topic we think many can relate to. We delve into the stress of being a parent, how to prevent “mommy burnout” and tips to keep your self-identity outside of mom or dad. We’re sipping “Mommy’s Time Out” which was the perfect escape. So grab your own glass, take a break from the kids, and listen!
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!

If you thought the Swiss were only good at making cheese fondue, you may be sorely mistaken! This episode we explore the discreet wine-making region of Switzerland, where some of the steepest vineyards in the world are located! We got our hands on a bottle of Petite Arvine from the Valais Region of Switzerland- which is not easy to do since the Swiss drink nearly all the wine they make! But you don’t need a bottle of Swiss wine to listen and enjoy!
