This year, like every other, feels like we’ve been on a never-ending roller coaster. With ups and downs and some loops thrown in, we can feel like we’re on top of the world and then, almost in a heartbeat, feel like we’re plummeting to our doom. And 2019 didn’t disappoint in this arena! In this episode, we recap some of last year’s highlights in rollercoaster fashion – some you may expect and others may come as a surprise – so hang on tight as we pop our Roller Coaster red blend!
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!

Are you a curfew breaker? If you’re one of our listeners, we bet most of you probably have at some point! But, that doesn’t mean they don’t have a purpose for the younger generations. This episode, we discuss the history behind curfews, if they are effective (do they actually prevent youth crime or protect the younger crowds?), and do they potentially violate juvenile civil liberties (wait, what??). While we ponder the concept of curfews, we sip on the No Curfew red blend.
As the winemakers say, “Work will be work and adulting is hard, but we’ll be there when you need that reprieve. So kick off your shoes, settle onto the sofa, and sip away. Now Swirl, Sip & Repeat!” Cheers!

Do you think you have a crazy family? Tune in as we share our own fun family anecdotes – such as (spoiler alert!) Jamie’s dad wanting to greet her date with a shotgun – all while discussing the challenges and opportunities of melding two different family dynamics together. Fittingly paired is the 2015 Petite Petit by Michael David Winery with its fantastic circus label. You’ll definitely need to sip on some as Sarah attempts to describe her version of family chaos theory. Step right up, it’s the Family Circus episode!
