WE’RE BACK!!!! And we are SO ready to drink with you!! Today we chit chat about what we’ve been up to the past couple months, and Jamie gives us the low down on the BIG life events she has experienced! To celebrate Jamie getting her wine MOJO back and coming full circle to sharing a bottle together, we pop open a Sonoma special, and reminisce about our trip to wine country. Tune in and join us for a celebratory comeback episode! Don’t forget the wine!
Are you living in a boomtown, or perhaps thinking of moving to one? While it may sound glamorous at first, there are some drawbacks to living in a boomtown. That being said, there are definitely some perks! We wanted to understand the history behind what makes people flock to a particular location, including the upsides and downsides. This episode we discuss the buzz behind booming cities such as Denver, Austin, and Seattle, and even touch on smaller ones that may become the next big thing! Press play to “explore” and sip along!
Finally! An episode dedicated to our absolute favorite – the legend, the Princess of Pop, the one and only: Whitney Houston. From the very beginning, Whitney possessed a certain magic that would come through in every one of her performances. This episode we discuss her life, our dearest memories with her songs, and why she truly is the ‘greatest love of all’ in the music world. Grab a glass of something bold and listen in as we reflect on the powerful icon that is Whitney.
It’s spring and we are all stuck at home…so it’s the perfect time to get crackin’ on some Spring Cleaning! You’d be surprised at how many perks there are to decluttering and scrubbing…and we aren’t just talking a garage you can finally walk through or a shinier-than-thou tub. We discuss how cleaning your closet can actually have real health benefits like stress relief (and we all need that these days)! We also share our own cleaning battles and tips to tackle this spring, getting rid of grime one day at a time! Grab a glass and join us in our quest for tidiness!

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!
