4 years?! Time sure does fly when you are having fun…especially while drinking wine! This episode we break out the wines we picked up on our inaugural DBP visit to Sonoma at a charming winery in Carneros. We both chose the same wine, but different vintages in anticipation of popping them for a special occasion. Listen in as we celebrate our DBPversary, and reflect while enjoying two beauties from the same vineyard! Sip along, because it’s a celebration, bitches!
We finally did it! Not only are we doing a vertical tasting this episode – trying 4 bottles of the same wine, each a different vintage – but, we are also breaking out our Coravin! Join us for this special wine experience, as we drink through Silverado Zinfandel from Napa Valley.
Spring ahead, fall back…it’s the saying we hear twice a year that drives us mad! Whose idea was it to institute daylight savings time? Does everybody recognize it? And why, oh why, do we still have it? We break down the arguments for and against this widespread practice while ‘Day’ drinking, if you catch our drift. Grab a glass to listen or help you adjust to the changing clocks!
Do you have what it takes? To really sink your teeth into it and get it done? Nothing worth it ever comes easy, and this episode we drill down into what “True Grit” really means. In the age of convenience, we thought we’d remind ourselves of what it takes to truly overcome the obstacles in life. But, hey, let’s make the journey fun and sip along with our episode’s namesake – True Grit Reserve Petite Sirah. Grab a glass, press play, and join us!
Next day delivery!! Most of us have fallen into the Amazon wolftrap of at-your-fingertips delivery of absolutely everything from eggs to curtains. I mean, it’s hard not to! How can you turn down the service that has single-handedly changed the nation’s framework in how goods reach the consumer? Need a frame to put a picture up? Amazon Prime it for tomorrow! And don’t forget to check all the reviews to make sure you’re getting the best one! Have you ever wondered, though, what is behind the curtain of convenience? Well, it may surprise you, and even get you to question the entire way you live your life (dramatic, but maybe) – we are diving into the Jeff Bezos way of running a business! You will definitely need to sip on something delish for this one!
Spring into the new season with us as we transition from the big red wines of winter into the fresh, fruity, and crisp wines that call for warmer temps. This episode features 4 wines – 2 whites and 2 reds – we think welcome the changing weather. These wines remind us of how we dress this time of year: a light layer, nothing too heavy, while we say bye-bye to darker colors and hello to brighter ones! Listen in as we awaken our senses for spring with these affordable beauties!

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!
This episode we talk singularity, and we aren’t referring to the relationship type (although that’s what Sarah thought it meant)! Singularity refers to when technology will become uncontrollable and be irreversible. And if you’re like us and thought that was millenia away, you are likely wrong – it could be just a few years away! And here we thought Alexa was creepy…scared yet?! We discuss what type of AI is out there, what it means to us, and of course what Elon Musk thinks about all this. Are we ready to give up our jobs and potentially even our human race to robots?! You’ll need a glass of wine to wrap your head around this episode!
2020 was definitely one for the books, with pretty much everyone ready to slam the door on the year and start fresh with a new one. Since we didn’t think everyone wanted to relive the dark incidents that will brand 2020 for years to come, we decided to dedicate this episode to highlighting some of the more uplifting events of the year and share some of our personal triumphs and accomplishments. Pour yourself something fabulous to toast as we ring in the New Year and say BUH-BYE to 2020!
