It's an EARNEST EPISODE despite their best efforts as the boys are joined by Andrew Yandell of Good Juice Club to discuss organic farming. If you're one of the mean wine meme accounts influenced by us, you can't make fun of us for believing in something, sorry nerds. Go and buy wine from Andrew's stellar wine club - it's basically the bomb. ////LIS…

Duck's on vacation so Kevin is gonna attempt to describe this one. It's our final episode of Loire-dew Valley, and we've got a heady episode to go out on. Our son Jesse Shappell is in person for this most-expensive episode. We discuss pyrazines, the ephemeral experience of wine made for its own sake , and the unbearable lightness of clos rougeard. …

The boys re-step into the ring with Christy Frank but this time they are allowed to swear. I don't think we made the obvious jokes re: Pineau d'aunis, but duh, we were thinking them. The wines fucking rip and we weren't expecting that, which is a really pleasant surprise. You should probably go get some if you get a chance. Thank you to all our new…
 
There is no nice way to say it: this is the grumpiest Duck has been on the pod, ever, so sorry. Kevin, luckily, steers the ship of state with aplomb and the boys welcom Luke Allen Wylde of Statera Cellers and Lares Wines to discuss bubble techniques, technical winemaking, and how shitty it must be to have losers drink your wines. Support Luke at al…
 
I swear to god, it's becoming more and more clear we only have seen like 3 movies. The boys are joined by Lauren Friel, owner of Rebel Rebel, Wild Child, and Hello Dear Annie, to discuss Romorantin, which, as we all can agree, is a grape that we have done enough research on to have thoughts. It was a silly delight. ////LIST//// Francois Cazin, Cour…
 
The boys are joined by the world's favorite sommelier, Miguel de Leon, to discuss Sancerre again -- but this time, it's the good kind. Forget sauv blanc, baby, we're talking pinot noir, and honey, these wines whip. Huge insane people energy episode, but frankly, if you're not going to get weird about pinot noir on limestone, what are you doing talk…
 
The boys have started another season, and this one is a doozy: welcome to the Loire. It's their first in person episode in over a year, so you know there's gonna be a LOT of social anxiety. Luckily, they are talking about grolleau, which is fun and delicious and cool, but probably doesn't need the same attention as, like, chenin (do not dm me about…
 
The boys talk Massachusetts rivalries, sports, and wine distribution nitty gritty with Sam Decker of Wine and Peace. Wine and Peace, the self - described "Etsy of Wine," is probably going to be the thing that destroys your boys' careers, so this is a little bittersweet. Seriously, these guys are wonderful people to buy wine from, and anything that …

In the thrilling conclusion to their season on the Pacific Northwest, the boys try to understand just what, exactly, all the wines they drank were reacting *against.* In a phone call today, Kevin described this episode as "one of the meta ones," and I think that's beautiful. I hope someone is keeping track of how often Duck compares himself to Lady…
 
The boys are joined by Jordan Michelman from Sprudge (and a million other places) to discuss the brads of the Pacific Northwest. Specifically, we’re talking about grapes that travelled far and probing the limits of terroir. Jordan is an absolute font of knowledge and you should stop whatever you’re doing right now and check out his most recent byli…
 
The boys are back in the PNWSSR and this time they are getting serious. The wines for this episode are all really good so buy them. Maybe just get them before you listen. Seriously. Long discussions about domestic winemaking, actual empathy from your jaded hosts, and even a touch of earnestness. Anyhow, think about where stuff comes from, you dingu…
 
Lorenzo Accomasso is a vintner in the La Morra area of Italy's Piemonte region. He has been releasing Barolo and other wines under the Accomasso label for several decades.

Welcome to Pacificnorthwestlandia. The boys discuss the concept of Chadosity in wines from Oregon, a place that they malign right out of the fucking gate. Duck describes a guy, the return of h*rses, and Kevin welcomes a newcomer to the Creed. It’s a banger of an ep and you’d be a fool to not listen, even though there aren’t any guests. We’re trying…
 
The boys are joined by Eti Emokpae to spend more time in Galicia, specifically Ribeira Sacra and Ribeiro. Due to a hefty amount of CBDs, Duck actually can pay attention and not do depression and Eti is just an absolute delight. Kevin does cool things too, really, all in all, it's perfect and it's such a great way to leave Spain for a bit. What a wo…
 
The boys are joined by Veronica Stoler and Ariana Rolich of Campio Collective (join their wine club) to talk about Garnacha, the metaphysics of appellations, soil types, and Duck’s hot amphora takes. This of course, is done through the lens of Gredos, the hottest “appellation” in “Spain” that is going to be out of all of our price ranges pretty fuc…
 
The boys are joined by Dana Staley and Nick Africano, the bi coastal team behind Enramistas, a sherry wine club thats taking the world by storm.

Please sign up for the next drop of some truly radical sherry at http://enramanewyorkcit…
 
We recorded this the day it snowed and Duck was already drunk. It was the third episode we did that week. It might be the best modern episode of disgorgeous. We discussed gators, island wines, and I think teen romance? I have no concrete memories, the conversation just flowed and brought joy to the world. Sara's wines FUCKING WHIP, and they just go…
 
Fuck we're done so many episodes this week and I don't remember this really but it's good, I promise. Featuring our amazing friends Sarah Fernandez and Jirka Jireh, I'm pretty sure we talked about Bierzo and Galicia and how wine is hell but also, redeemable if we try hard enough. Yirka and Sarah are rock stars. Follow and read them and take classes…
 
god damn you already know what it is we weren't supposed to do this. Please listen to episode 68 to like, really get our opinions on Txokolina. The post office fucked us. Covid fucked us. But we're still here for you. If you miss the old disgorgeous you'll like this. List: Gaintza, Getariako Txakolina, 2019// Ameztoi, Getariako Txakolina, 'Rubentis…
 
The boys are joined with De Maison East's Ryan Looper to talk about Rioja, the history of Spain, and not nearly enough caliphate chat. We drank some killer dad wine and really loved it holy shit. I really don't remember what we talked about but it's a fantastic episode. On the bonus (patreon.com/disgorgeous) the boys got blue. Welcome to the season…
 
The boys close out Novemberfest with Will Ryan of Blaze Brewing to discuss the other German Wine, beer. This is a great episode to discover a lot of truths, such as who really can smoke weed, what happened to JFK, what’s up with Duck’s emotional state and what do German accents sound like, really? This is also a really fun and silly exploration tha…
 
The boys are joined by Evan Lewandowski from Ruth Lewandowski to discuss horny bible books, Britney Spears, and sprite along with riesling from Rheingau. Also, they meet Evan’s dog, who is perfect.

The boys are joined by natural wine heart-throb Brent Mayeaux, the dork behind Stagiaire wines to disparage Charlemagne, drink Silvaner, and decannonize saints.

The boys are joined by James Russell of Red Newt to talk about amphibians, the traitor Martin Luther, German ideas and the similarities between the Finger Lakes and the Rheinhessen.

Kev is back!!!! The boys welcome Gina Hildebrand and Mikey Giugni from Lady of Sunshine and Scar of the Sea to discuss Baden Pinot noirs and kick off Novemberfest 2020.

Duck is joined by the world's biggest apple nerds, William Mullen, Benford Leplay of Floral Terranes, and Jenny Eagleton to discuss fruit foraging, soul filtering, and slug husbandry. This is also your annual reminder that literally the most insane garagiste stuff in the wine world is actually happening in cider (which you should be drinking much m…
 
Kevin Diamond joins duck to discuss eels, his new baby, and honestly mostly eels. I never listen to these episodes but I seem to recall Kevin going on and on and on about those fucking guys.

Duck is joined by Lebanese content creator extraordinaire Farrah Berrou to discuss the history of wine in the region, interesting uses for amphorae, and how listeners can actually aid in the recovery from the blast in the port of Beirut on August 4th. If you can, please consider donating to the Lebanese Red cross or Impact Lebanon, and certainly ma…
 
*please note: it is NOT illegal for women to do pigeage in France. It’s rather against custom and considered impure. I regret offending any of our French listeners, but also, not really that much to be honest.* Wow, Beaujolais! WHAT A TREAT TO ENJOY WITH YOUR FRIENDS. Duck and his two amigos get real, finally, while drinking some good and some not …
 
John welcomes to the pod Joseph Bohling, author of the Sober Revolution: Appellation Wine and the Transformation of France, and James Sligh, author of the upcoming Children's Atlas of Wine, to talk about the very modern roots of the idea of the French AOC system. I think this is the first time we've allowed John to say "neoliberalism" on the pod, a…
 
Kevin, are you reading this? I miss you. Dms open man. Paternity Leave episode one, Duck is joined by Miguel and Rafa to discuss Rum. Unfortunately, it's an all bad boy episode, so there is a lot of time in the weeds discussing Tiki cocktails, colonialism and genocide, why museums suck, 9/11 and a weird dream duck had. It's a wild ride, pour yourse…
 
In a very special episode, the boys enlist the help of old pal Jesse Shapell to wrap up this Summer's "Postcards from Italy" season in a bright Sangiovese-colored bow. Kevin prepares to become a Dad, and John hides in a closet. Kevin would like to thank everyone for their support as he begins his paternity leave, and apologizes for leaving you alon…
 
The boys are joined by sommelier Kenneth Crum to discuss Campania, which absolutely deserved like 3 episodes. File this episode under "you might learn something" because holy shit do these wines kick ass. Duck DOES accuse one of the producers of child sacrifice, but we're pretty sure that's just a joke and absolutely not legally actionable. Bottom …
 
We have completely unraveled. The boys discuss Corsica, which, of course, is a French Island that Italy has no legal claim to. They both think it counts and it's not sure why. If you wanted to hear anti white propoganda and about the weirdest trip to victoria's secret Duck has ever had, this is your episode. We love you all for being our therapists…
