Happy 2014! – Episode 47


Happy New Year!  We kick off 2014 with a couple of delicious White Blends and a show that just may have you laughing from start to finish!  The wine itself isn’t funny, but once it’s inside the panelists…well…you’ll just have to watch and see.  For the first time ever, we’re making sure you know the dominant varieties in each of the White Blends before you watch the show (see below).  Our thought is that it will help as you make a few notes.  Let us know if you like having this info!  The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
