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?!)

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and the season of gifting! We think the perfect gift is the purple drink of the gods, but know that it can be intimidating to select the perfect bottle of wine for your recipient.

From your novice wine drinker in the family to your wine-o best friend who is always sniffing and slurping their wine, we have an idea for everyone. Get festive with a glass and listen in!
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!

Wow! It’s our Centennial! The 100th DBP episode!!

Much like the wine we’re pairing this topic with, Experience can lead you to new, uncharted territories. Sometimes good, sometimes bad, more oftentimes scary. Maybe you had a falling out with a friend, maybe you had to move somewhere you’ve never been (ahem, “The Place That Shall Not Be Named”), maybe you live for the unfamiliar! Whichever bucket you find yourself, have you ever considered what you gained from these experiences? In this episode, we take a trip back to reflect more deeply on some of those pivotal moments in your DBP hosts’ lives: becoming less Type A, moving to Milwaukee, a trip to Napa that changed everything. So let the stars align for you, let fear carry you forward rather than hold you back, and tune in. And remember, wine is not just a beverage, it’s an experience!
