So you wanna know the jist of this show? Take a look at the hashtag at the bottom of the screen shot…that’s really all you need to know. We go from a wine that has a licorice taste, to anise, to a love/hate relationship with anise. And to think, the evening began innocently enough with a couple of bottles of delicious Pinot Gris. The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:

FILMING LOCATION: We’re up on the hill overlooking Woodinville Wine Country. It’s hard to decide the most beautiful place on this property…is it the indoor setting, or the fabulous outdoor spaces? Either way, JM Cellars is a must see on your next trip to Woodinville.
