A Rose’ By Any Other Name – Episode 69


With the weather warming up, a chilled wine sounds good, right?  On tonight’s show, we’re showcasing Rose’ with a twist.  You see, Rose’ can be made from all kinds of red grapes, so we gave the panelists two completely different types of Rose’ to see which one appealed most to their taste buds.  The result?  They found something they liked in BOTH of them!   The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
