Oh Marina! And now you know how much fun this one’s going to be, because our “center square” is at it again! We were feeling extra playful with one of white wine’s most mysterious varieties: Riesling. For our stars, it’s mysterious, because they’re always expecting Riesling to be sweet, and once again on Northwest Wine Night, we show you there’s a lot more to this white! The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
