The Olympics were definitely different than usual this year with empty stadiums and athletes taking wellness days…. but, one thing that hasn’t changed is the stark contrast in uniform between the men and women’s teams in certain sports. What IS that about?! And is anyone doing anything about it? We speculate on the topic while sipping on a self-proclaimed SILVER chardonnay!
As it turns out, the Mitten State has more to offer than lakes, apples, and college football – Michigan is also home to several gorgeous wineries!! This episode we recount Sarah’s recent trip to Michigan Wine Country, which was a surprising first for this Michigander. Listen in to learn about the abundance of fruit – for vino and otherwise – that make up Michigan’s coastline, and even more importantly, how does the wine taste??!! Find out with us as we sip on a Gewurztraminer from Old Mission Peninsula, MI (who knew?!)
When thinking of iconic New York dishes, most of us refer to staples like the reuben sandwich or traditional cheesecake. Well perhaps some NY wine would pair well with your NY bagel? Who knew that the state of NY has recently been the third largest producer of wine in the U.S., with over 300 wineries across 9 AVAs?! This episode we take a little detour to learn about a well-established, yet little known region right here in our own backyard!

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!
Boobies…we got ’em, and we gotta take care of ’em! With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, we thought what better time to focus our conversation – and beverage – on the twins we’ve got on the front of our bodies. One in eight woman will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, a sobering statistic for sure. The good news is there are higher survival rates and technology that improves detection. Still, breast cancer is a scary thing, and we want to be sure our DBPeeps are informed and have a better understanding of how to support those affected. While drinking the Montes Twins red blend, we run through recent statistics surrounding breast cancer, preventive measures, symptoms, and resources that exist. So wear pink, pour a drink, and cheers to boobies!
