The Wine (& Popcorn) Vote – Episode 114

Episode 114:

Have you decided who gets your vote in 2016?  One of our stars is running on the “Popcorn And Wine” ticket, and whether she’s elected or not, her campaign platform is sure fun to listen to!  And we’re tasting Red Blend, which means there aren’t many notes, so the tasting doesn’t get any more blind than this one.  So grab a glass of wine, and if you’re on Twitter, have fun with tonight’s hashtags: #VotePopcorn&Wine2016  #RedBlend  #CorkLocal
