Northwest Wine Night TV – “The Gloves Come Off” (ep134) 3.23.16


Episode 134:

In true boys versus girls fashion, we present another “Battle of the Sexes” on Northwest Wine Night TV.  The ladies appear to be on the same page.  The gents?  Not even in the same book!  And remember, Easter is early this year, but the Easter Bunny might be late…because one of our panelists ate him with his wine!  I guess he couldn’t help it, because the Merlot on tonight’s show was so good.     So grab a glass of wine, and if you’re on Twitter,  follow us (@NWWineNight) and have fun with tonight’s hashtags: #Wine  #CorkLocal  #BattleOfTheSexes #Merlot


Tonight’s Wine:  Merlot
