So not only did we have some delicious Pinot Gris at the table tonight, but we also had a face you’ve never seen on the show. We’ve had such a great third season of Northwest Wine Night: The Internet Show, that we are taking time to salute everyone who works really hard behind the scenes. Shout outs to Drew Mayer, Steve Starbuck, Jennifer O’Neal, and Jeff Nouwens for everything you do. And there’s one more…his name is Gary Gibson, and we surprised him by saving him a seat at the table. The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
