December 24, 2015 - Sipping with Slippers (www.sippingwithslippers.com) releases its Christmas episode for wine lovers. The winos are at it again in Christmas socks and slippers reviewing red wines and singing their own versions of traditional Christmas songs with a wino twist!
Since the season's favorite color is red, the Slippers team, Original Sip, Sneaky Sip, Over Sip, Gewürztraminer the Wiener Dog and special guest, share the differences and what to look for in a Syrah (Shiraz), Merlot and a Cabernet Sauvignon and all under $30.

The team invites a guest wine expert to share his expertise and thoughts of what to expect in each red. On location at Sip Wines in Richmond BC http://www.sipwines.ca/, Simon talks about three great BC reds under $30. Wines he discusses in this episode include the Black Sage Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon http://www.blacksagevineyard.ca/, a Nk'Mip Cellars Merlot and the Daydreamer Wines Syrah http://daydreamerwines.ca/.
Back at home, the Slippers team also reviews three red wines of their own choice. They rate their wines with a "slippers up", so the best a wine can do is a "6 slippers up" rating if all of the 3 winos are present (and can count). Wines they rate include a Mt Boucherie Winery 2012 Merlot (http://mtboucheriewinery.com ) a, 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Vin de France Poujol, and a St Hallet Barossa 2011 Faith Shiraz from Australia. The winner and favorite by far is the Mt Boucherie merlot with a "6 six slippers up "verdict.

The Slippers team also reminds everyone to be safe during the holidays and if you are going to drink wine - don't drive. Sneaky Sip who always quotes Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra quotes Dean:" If you drink don't drive. Don't even putt."
The Slippers team also sing some original Christmas songs you will never forget including 'Oversip, the red-nosed wino '.Gewürztraminer the Wiener Dog is all dressed up for the season as Santa Dog but not overly happy with his outfit.

Oversip, the red-nosed wino
Oversip, the red-nosed wino
Had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
You would even say it glows.
All of the other winos
Used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Oversip
Join in any drinking games.
Then one foggy Christmas Eve
The winos came to say:
"Oversip with your nose so bright,
Won't you light up our bar tonight
Then how the sippers loved him
And as they drank and sang with glee
Oversip the red-nosed wino
Found his sipping in slippers Family!
