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!
When you start messing with the fate of wine, your DBP hosts’ most-beloved beverage, you’ve caught our attention. Climate change is no joke and it’s definitely causing a stir for wine-growing regions, especially those niche regions. Will Canada be able to continue making their signature icewine? Will we have to say goodbye to our favorite familiar varietals and welcome lesser-known ones? Will new wine regions pop up that we could have never imagined (Russian wine, anyone)? We don’t know for sure, but we had fun hypothesizing what opportunities and potential changes may be in store. We are definitely not scientists, but we can for damn sure speculate on wine. And we got our hands on a rare treat – a red wine from the only desert in the middle of a country that is 50% frozen: Canada!
