Ep65: This Wine is Uncanny

Wine in a can?! While it may sound outrageous, the new trend is to can our favorite beverage for convenience, portability, and because it’s the hip new thing. As more and more producers jump on the canned wine train, we have been asking ourselves if we should join this modern movement. So to get to the bottom of the can, so to speak, we decided to compare every aspect of canned vs bottled wine, from taste to cost. We grabbed a bottle and a can of pinot noir from one of the biggest entrepreneurs in the canned wine industry – Union Wine Company – for our taste test challenge. Is the can too good to be true? Or is it the perfect way for wine to be a part of all our adventures? Grab a bottle or can (or both!) and listen in to find out! #pinkiesdown

Ep52: DBP Travels: A Sonoma Success

Coming at you live from DBP’s motherland, California, this episode was recorded in our hotel after a long, delicious day of wine tasting through Sonoma County. After visiting four wineries – from small and rustic to a chateau with beautiful gardens – we share little tidbits from along the journey with history and fun facts, try to whittle down our list of favorites from the day, and recommend some stops for wine country travelers. Highlighted by meeting a couple of the winemakers themselves and capping off our day with chocolate and a little “S&M,” the Sonoma leg of our tour was a blast! According to the Californians, “You can drink whatever you want, as long as you drink wine.” Cheers!
