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?!)
Just across the Adriatic Sea from Italy lies the small, yet stunningly beautiful country of Croatia. Besides the miles of crystal clear coastline and hundreds of gorgeous islands, there’s also wine! And lots of it! Unique to Croatia are several varietals of wine that you probably have never heard of, but are surprisingly delicious. Indigenous grapes like Graševina or Plavac Mali might be hard to pronounce, but not to drink. Grab a glass and take a trip with us across the world to sunny Croatia and explore their remarkable wine culture with us! A must try and a must listen!

“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!
