With the leaves changing into vibrant colors and a fresh crispness in the air, fall has arrived! And so have the festivities that come with it! This episode we have a laid-back chat about favorite fall activities – from apple picking to cider doughnuts (including Jamie’s culinary adventure!), we get into what makes this season truly a ball! We’ve paired a late harvest Riesling to commemorate this time of year, which will go perfectly with your delicious fall treats. Time to harvest yourself a glass (or mug!) of something spiked and enjoy!
Trick or Treat, smell our feet, give us something good to eat! We’re known for our love of wine, but we also have quite the sweet tooth – teeth? – especially around Halloween. From pumpkin shaped Reese’s to candy corn (does anyone really like it?), all of us have our fave treats this time of year. We share some of ours, the story behind the beloved candy tradition, and the darker side of trick-or-treating…dare we say…poison?! Grab some candy, pick your poison (we sure did!) and listen in!
As the warm weather winds down, we share our top summer activities (just add wine!) and what makes it most special for us. We not only cover the best wines to drink in the summer, we also make sure that you’ll leave this episode with fun summer facts like did you know you can tell temperature through crickets?! Summer Water rosé keeps us hydrated in the heat as we bid farewell to our favorite season!
The holiday season is upon us!! And with all the joy this time of year brings, sometimes comes unwanted guests…and we are not referring to your Great Aunt Kathy who shows up unannounced with a suitcase and some fruitcake…we are talking about STRESS! This episode, we chat holiday stressors and tactics to make the best of this festive time. How can we escape the holiday blues and focus on the “reason for the season,” appreciating all the pleasures that comes with spending time with loved ones and the spirit of giving. We have lots of helpful tips to keep you merry and bright all season long! Of course, wine helps – so pour yourself a glass and drink along with us! Escape is the name of the game as we sip on PAXIS Red Blend, the winemaker’s expression of a way to escape from the stress of the world and appreciate the pleasure a great wine can give. Happy Holidays DBPeeps!
