Hold on to your wine glasses as we pay tribute to one of the most fun television shows in history! As we prepare to mark Valentine’s Day, we present a show that’s a combination of the Northwest Wine Night you know and love…and one of host Brian Calvert’s favorite game shows. We call it “The Newlywine Game.” Our stars (and their spouses) will taste and talk about some great Merlot just like usual. But then we turn up the fun when we ask each spouse to tell us what their significant other will choose as their favorite. We hope you enjoy watching “The Newlywine Game” as much as we enjoyed making it for you. The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
