Ep49: Kaleidoscope of Ethics

Nature versus Nurture? This age-old question takes us to our interesting topic on the ethics behind scientific research, specifically involving twins. Identical twins share the same genes, making them the perfect study subjects for testing the impact of environment and genetic makeup on anything from the aging process to vocal or facial recognition to mental health. But how far can/should you take it? According to the book Identical Strangers, apparently as far as separating multiple births intentionally in the name of research! Listen in as we get deep into the weeds on this one – it’s a doozy! Get ready for some heavy sighs as we pair our episode with Prisma Pinot Noir from Chile, as there are several facets to this topic…a kaleidoscope if you will!

Ep15: Heal The World

“Make it a better place!” Organic. Natural. Sustainable. What does it all mean? Inspired by the 2016 Art of Earth Pinot Grigio, made with Italian organic grapes, we tackle the topic on what these “earthy” terms mean in the winemaking process and what we as buyers of wine should be aware of as wine becomes a global commodity. We also dive into the topic of organic food and day-to-day practices that can “make the world a better place” (to quote the infamous MJ). Be good to the environment, be good to your body, and drink good wine. Cheers from your DBP Grigio Girls!
