Ep44: Canada, Climates, and Cru

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!

Ep40: Assaults on Healthcare Workers: A Shocking Realization

O. M. G. Not only does this describe our wine pairing for this episode, but it also sums up our feelings about recent news! The media has highlighted some recent attacks on healthcare workers – as it should – and we’re shocked by some of the motives behind these attacks and the outcomes! Although healthcare workers are supposed to keep patients safe…who’s keeping them safe? How can they be expected to do their jobs without proper safety and security precautions on work premises? In this episode, we mention a few closer-to-home events that have played out like Grey’s Anatomy episodes, and talk about what more can and should be done to prevent more events like these. Make sure you’ve got a glass of wine in hand when you listen to this one!

Ep39: The Chronic Conundrum

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware of a recreational vice that’s quickly becoming one of the nation’s favorites. And no, it’s not wine (that’s definitely our favorite!), but marijuana (aka “the chronic” among many aliases). The marijuana craze has been swiftly sweeping the country, with the number of states legalizing the drug for both medicinal and recreational purposes increasing annually. In this episode we discuss the pros and cons of marijuana legalization, touching on everything from economics, safety, and even how it may impact the wine industry! You may leave this episode with a stronger sense of where you stand on the topic, or it may drive you deeper into the Chronic Conundrum! So grab a bottle of Purple Paradise by Chronic Cellars (yes, that is pure wine), tune in and decide for yourself!

Ep37: The Magic of the 45th

Some call it the “Magnificent Mile” for wine growing, but what is really behind all the fuss of the 45th parallel? This invisible line runs halfway between the equator and the North Pole, where some of the best wines of the world are grown. We delve into the fascination of this geographical prominence – is it really magical or is there more to it? – all while drinking a namesake wine coming from the Rhône valley itself, which is knee-deep in those 45 degrees of latitude.
