Wow! It’s our Centennial! The 100th DBP episode!! We are celebrating this most momentous occasion with a memorable wine from our DBP trip to Napa Valley, while reflecting on our growth since our beginnings. How have our wine tastes evolved, and what have been our most favorite episodes, and most surprising wines we’ve tasted? We reflect on all of this and more as we journey back 100 episodes and more than 100 wines!! Pop open something yummy and celebrate along with us!
You may have noticed your favorite French wine has recently disappeared from the shelves, or perhaps that Spanish Garnacha you love is a few dollars more. This is likely due to the wine tariffs introduced last year imparting an extra fee on certain goods (ahem…wine) from certain European countries. In this episode, we clarify which wines are affected and why this tariff even started in the first place (what does wine have to do with airplanes?!). While we are all about ‘Made in America’ we do love those German Rieslings and other wines made ‘across the pond’. Grab a glass of your fave European wine and listen in to find out if you should be stocking up!
Close encounters…and we don’t mean the late night, lust-filled rendezvous or frisky dating-app type! This episode we discuss the extraterrestrial, green martian kind of encounters. The ones of the third kind. Throughout history, there’ve been countless UFO sightings, but is there any truth to them or is it just people’s imaginations running wild? And what about Area 51? We call into question a number of conspiracy theories involving these flying saucers, life beyond earth, and our own perspectives on the supernatural. So grab a glass of one of your most precious earthly possessions (wine, of course!) and listen in!
