From Vivaldi to Van Halen – (ep126) 1/13/16

Episode 126:

We continue our party into the new year with Pinot Gris tonight, and an edition of “Party Favors” you won’t soon forget!  On this episode, we asked the stars to describe their wine as a famous band or music group, and the answers take us from rock royalty, to big band, and the to Vivaldi.  And in the end, you have some unforgettable descriptions for two local wines you just have to try!  So grab a glass of wine, and if you’re on Twitter like we are (@NWWineNight) have fun with tonight’s hashtags: #Wine  #CorkLocal  #PinotGris
