Would it surprise you to learn that there’ve been some incredible wine heists – ranging from hundreds of thousands to over a million dollars worth of the liquid libation? Yours truly could not believe how seemingly common it is for these types of raids, let alone the frequency (hitting the same place twice?!) and lack of security when retail shops and restaurants alike boast some of the highest quality and priced wines in the world. In the glass, we travel to Italy’s boot, and feel like “the grape thieves” drinking this delicious and affordable wine.
Thinking back 20 years ago, we never thought we would already be in the era of electric and self-driving cars (Back to the Future, anyone?) As this technology is pushed to become more mainstream – we want to truly understand if they are for the better. Are they more environmentally-friendly and safer to us, the drivers? Or is there a sinister hand at play? Join us while we debate the future of vehicles while we sip on Sinister Hand Red Wine from Columbia Valley.
We couldn’t think of a better way to mark 5 years of the Drunk Bitches Podcast than with a blind tasting….and who doesn’t love a blind tasting?! We are so excited to bring you our second episode fully experiencing the joys and pains of blind tasting. What did we pick for each other and why? Join us and laugh along as we guess our way through the glass. Hint hint: this time we have a red and a white!
Calling all Pet lovers! This episode we circle back to the discussion we had 3 seasons ago (episode 98 to be exact) when we debated on whether to bring a furry friend into the household. One of us bit the bullet and got a puppy! Listen in as we talk about the journey to welcome our new DBP family member, and the lessons we learned along the way. All while drinking the perfect wine for this episode, PETS!
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!
