We couldn’t think of a better way to mark 5 years of the Drunk Bitches Podcast than with a blind tasting….and who doesn’t love a blind tasting?! We are so excited to bring you our second episode fully experiencing the joys and pains of blind tasting. What did we pick for each other and why? Join us and laugh along as we guess our way through the glass. Hint hint: this time we have a red and a white!
We thought we would kick the New Year off with a very special treat. One that we were thrilled to experience personally, and to be able to bring to you – the distinct honor of interviewing the Queen and Godmother of Wine herself, Karen MacNeil, on her newly released third edition of the Wine Bible. Grab a drink and listen in!
Bet you didn’t think there was a wine out there called Furmint, but in fact, there is! You’d probably also be surprised to hear it is from one of the only countries that has its own oak too – Hungary! Not only does Hungary sit on the same latitude as the infamous Burgundy, but it produces a wine that was once called “the wine of kings and the king of wines.” Pour yourself something fit for a king and explore Hungry for Hungary with us!
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?!)
Spring into the new season with us as we transition from the big red wines of winter into the fresh, fruity, and crisp wines that call for warmer temps. This episode features 4 wines – 2 whites and 2 reds – we think welcome the changing weather. These wines remind us of how we dress this time of year: a light layer, nothing too heavy, while we say bye-bye to darker colors and hello to brighter ones! Listen in as we awaken our senses for spring with these affordable beauties!

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. This episode we give you tips on how to choose the right bottle. If that’s not enough, we have plenty of suggestions for wine-related presents to give as well. 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!
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!
It’s Independence Day and what better way to celebrate than with a big bang! This episode, we are talking fireworks and other family traditions in honor of America’s Birthday. There is more to those sparkling lights in the sky than meets the eye, and we are here to explore the meaning behind them and honor the Red, White, & Blue! Grab a celebratory glass and toast to this great country’s freedom with DBP!

Somewhere in the midst of our wine debauchery, we had the pleasure of stumbling upon Birk O’Halloran, founder and winemaker of Iconic Wines. This episode, Birk joined us for a drink and an inside look on the story behind Iconic Wines. From their no “dogma-free” winemaking approach to the quintessential comic book heroes on every label, we not only learned a ton from Birk, but had a blast doing so! Anything delicious will pair well with this treat of an episode!
Check out Birk’s newest project, Rockwell Vermouth!
