Better to give than to receive goes the saying, and we couldn’t agree more! This episode, we delve into the art of gift giving. What truly makes the perfect gift, and how have our outlooks on “presents!!” changed throughout the years? We share our favorites, and what we’ve tried in the past. Who knows, you might get some ideas for your next gift purchase! Treat yourself to a glass of wine and sit back and listen in!
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.
Criminal offenses in the name of wine?! It’s true, they do exist and there are quite a few. This episode we explore the lawless delinquents that have tarnished the world of wine – from silly offenses like a highway heist of wine (wait….what??!) to more negligent crimes that have caused serious and irreparable damage to winemakers and drinkers alike. You’ll need to have a drink with us as we review the baddest behaviors in the wine industry.
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!

You may have noticed your favorite French wine has recently disappeared from the shelves, or perhaps that Spanish Garnacha you love is a few dollars more. This is likely due to the wine tariffs introduced last year imparting an extra fee on certain goods (ahem…wine) from certain European countries. In this episode, we clarify which wines are affected and why this tariff even started in the first place (what does wine have to do with airplanes?!). While we are all about ‘Made in America’ we do love those German Rieslings and other wines made ‘across the pond’. Grab a glass of your fave European wine and listen in to find out if you should be stocking up!
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
Need a break from the news? Perhaps an escape to some mindless, yet wildly entertaining, maybe even semi-trashy TV? Well do we have an episode for you! We review our fave binge-worthy shows that will have you keep pressing play on the remote, while losing track of the day. Listen in to find out what your next weekend could bring – a glass (or maybe bottle if you’re binge-watching) and some drama-filled, DBP recommended, juicy shows that will keep you entertained for hours!
Close encounters…and we don’t mean the late night, lust-filled rendezvous or frisky dating-app type! This episode we discuss the extraterrestrial, green martian kind of encounters. The ones of the third kind. Throughout history, there’ve been countless UFO sightings, but is there any truth to them or is it just people’s imaginations running wild? And what about Area 51? We call into question a number of conspiracy theories involving these flying saucers, life beyond earth, and our own perspectives on the supernatural. So grab a glass of one of your most precious earthly possessions (wine, of course!) and listen in!
The day of love is upon us and we thought we’d honor it with a tribute to the sensual substances named after the goddess of love herself, Aphrodite. Wine and chocolate seem like a titillating duo to woo your sweetheart any day, but there may be more creative ways to boost your libido (avocado, anyone?). We discuss several aphrodisiacs, their stimulating history, and the science behind their arousing properties. Sipping on the tempting red blend, Sexual Chocolate, we get in the mood for this most romantic day! #eatsomethingsexy
There’s no escaping the recent news: Prince Harry and his bride, Meghan Markle, are stepping down as senior members of the British Royal Family with the hope of leading a more private life. But what does that actually mean for the supreme couple? It certainly seems to be more than just giving up a title. If you’re royally obsessed like us, then you’ll want to know all the details and we’ve made sure to do the digging for you! We’ve got the latest on the Royal Exit and recommend you sip on something fit for a Queen while you listen in!
