Just as you were beginning to think “There’s no way that panel on Northwest Wine Night can surprise me,” hold on to your seats. This episode, like every other episode we produce, starts innocently enough. Brian introduces that the panel will be tasting Viognier. Well, that’s when the French accents suddenly come out, and then laughter follows. At this point, we’ve had another fun show with great wine, but wait…there’s more. So, you know those French accents we just told you about? By the end of our little party, one of the stars begins to sing in French. The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
