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
As the warm weather winds down, we share our top summer activities (just add wine!) and what makes it most special for us. We not only cover the best wines to drink in the summer, we also make sure that you’ll leave this episode with fun summer facts like did you know you can tell temperature through crickets?! Summer Water rosé keeps us hydrated in the heat as we bid farewell to our favorite season!
Wine in a can?! While it may sound outrageous, the new trend is to can our favorite beverage for convenience, portability, and because it’s the hip new thing. As more and more producers jump on the canned wine train, we have been asking ourselves if we should join this modern movement. So to get to the bottom of the can, so to speak, we decided to compare every aspect of canned vs bottled wine, from taste to cost. We grabbed a bottle and a can of pinot noir from one of the biggest entrepreneurs in the canned wine industry – Union Wine Company – for our taste test challenge. Is the can too good to be true? Or is it the perfect way for wine to be a part of all our adventures? Grab a bottle or can (or both!) and listen in to find out! #pinkiesdown
‘Tis the season for bolder red wines and deer hunting! In this episode we’re joined by avid huntsman, Adam, as we explore the ethos of the modern, ethical hunter. Delving into the drive behind the hunt, we discuss the hunter’s responsiblity to the environment, the animal, and the earth, and how the stigma associated with the sport is not reflective of a true huntsman. This isn’t some float off into the woods and have a bonfire type of deal; it requires skill and a specific mindset. Fittingly paired with St. Hubert’s “The Stag” Cabernet Sauvignon, this episode is one that’ll prove insightful for those unfamiliar with the hunting world.
