Do you remember when massive throngs of people gathered to drink wine together without a second thought? In Ep. 91, we reminisce about our most memorable moments from wine trade shows and consumer fairs with guest panelists Alpana Singh and Stevie Kim. We also discuss the ways in which these mega-events forge connections and propel the industry forward.
We’re trying out something new this season. In each episode, just after an introductory word from our sponsor—thank you, Erath!—listen up for our “cold open.” Cohost Martin Reyes, MW, kicks off the show by hitting us with one of his signature “dad jokes.”
Do you like this new twist? Let us know if Martin’s got you groaning or giggling. And share your best/worst pun-packed jokes with us on Twitter.
Looking for something to sip, listen to, or read? Here are our “dessert wine” recommendations for this week.
Passito di Pantelleria is a sweet Mediterranean island wine. The “Imagined Life” podcast puts you in the shoes of famous people. And we’ve got two books for you: Inward is a contemplative work by poet and meditator Yung Pueblo, and Beneath a Scarlet Sky is a real-life WWII adventure story set in northern Italy.
Our figurative “dessert wines” will always be listed on our social media feeds, as a slideshow on Instagram or as separate Twitter posts. Just follow us to get those sweet, sweet recommendations.
You know what’s missing from your life? Sparkling Wine Anytime-themed t-shirts, beach towels, tote bags, and cocktail napkins, and soon… insulated aluminum wine/water bottles.
Our t-shirts are a gorgeous cassis color, and are slightly cropped with a roomy feel yet tailored look. The design is a Sparkling Wine Anytime original and is offered in women’s sizes XS-XL.
Our beach towels and are organic-cotton totes are made and printed in the USA, and feature original artwork by Mercedes Leon. Our cocktail napkins feature a metallic bubble design, available in gold or rose gold, and come in sets of 20.
