It’s the most wonderful time of the year and the season of gifting! We think the perfect gift is the purple drink of the gods, but know that it can be intimidating to select the perfect bottle of wine for your recipient. This episode we give you tips on how to choose the right bottle. If that’s not enough, we have plenty of suggestions for wine-related presents to give as well. From your novice wine drinker in the family to your wine-o best friend who is always sniffing and slurping their wine, we have an idea for everyone. Get festive with a glass and listen in!
With the leaves changing into vibrant colors and a fresh crispness in the air, fall has arrived! And so have the festivities that come with it! This episode we have a laid-back chat about favorite fall activities – from apple picking to cider doughnuts (including Jamie’s culinary adventure!), we get into what makes this season truly a ball! We’ve paired a late harvest Riesling to commemorate this time of year, which will go perfectly with your delicious fall treats. Time to harvest yourself a glass (or mug!) of something spiked and enjoy!
Happy National Wine & Cheese Day! We couldn’t let this day pass without lending a DBP hand in an attempt to answer the wine-drinker’s million dollar question – what wine should I pair with my food (or vice versa)?! Creating the ideal pairing isn’t quite rocket science, but it’s not always easy either. In this episode we share some tips and tricks for putting together a great pairing. There are certainly some guiding principles to make your mouth do a little happy dance as you sip and nibble, but remember: taste is subjective. We pop open a bottle of Savor Collective to accompany our savory discussion that certainly makes us salivate. Cheers!
