Ep106: Sounds of Silence

In a world of noise and chaos, most of us are constantly searching for just a few moments of peace and quiet, and as the pandemonium around us gets louder, it becomes harder and harder to find that inner silence. Well, we may have found the perfect solution to get away from it all – float therapy! And we aren’t talking the root beer kind! This episode we interview Andy, the owner and founder of Float Milwaukee, a local float spa. Floating is a relaxation therapy in which one floats in a pod full of salt water, eliminating external stimuli and giving the body a reset. And there are several health benefits far more than just noise relief! Listen in and find out from Andy how floating may just be your newest way to unwind, rest, and rejuvenate! A glass of relaxing red pairs excellently with this episode!

Criminal offenses in the name of wine?! It’s true, they do exist and there are quite a few.

You’ll need to have a drink with us as we review the baddest behaviors in the wine industry.

Ep104: Iconic Wines with Birk O’Halloran

Somewhere in the midst of our wine debauchery, we had the pleasure of stumbling upon Birk O’Halloran, founder and winemaker of Iconic Wines. This episode, Birk joined us for a drink and an inside look on the story behind Iconic Wines. From their no “dogma-free” winemaking approach to the quintessential comic book heroes on every label, we not only learned a ton from Birk, but had a blast doing so! Anything delicious will pair well with this treat of an episode!

Check out Birk’s newest project, Rockwell Vermouth!

Ep103: Happy Trails

Itching for adventure but maybe getting on a plane is not feeling like the right move these days? A good ol’ campfire might be just what you need, and what better time to grab a backpack, hit the road, and find a secluded outdoor place to hang for awhile (or maybe just one night for some of us)! This episode, we explore the different ways you can camp out – or even glamp out – and get ideas for our next outdoor expedition. ‘Tis the season for tents, s’mores, and being one with nature – just don’t forget to add wine!

Ep98: To Pet or Not to Pet

That is the question! It truly is for some of us who are in need of a furry friend, yet unsure if it is the right fit. This episode we delve in to the pros and cons of having a pet, as well as the different types of pets to consider (who knew a mouse could be a pet?)! Once you decide on a pet, we have tips on where to find your next best friend. This is a time when many of us are contemplating pet ownership (including one of us!), and we thought we’d bring the pet debate front and center. Why not listen in with a glass of one of your favorites and decide for yourself!

Ep95: Taxation for the Wine Nation

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!
