(VIDEO) Episode 204 – “Merlot Mister Nice Guy”

(2018)  Who’s one of the nicest of the rich and famous?  We find out as we taste a couple of bottles of Northwest-made Merlot.   It’s an interesting list of “nice guys” that turns funny, then endearing, then political.  Well, as political as you can get while drinking wine with friends!  And if you’re a fan of Ed Sheeran, one of our stars shares a fun encounter with the famous singer.

So, grab a glass of wine, and get ready for some fun!  We’ll taste two wines, talk about them, play a game, then reveal what we’ve been tasting…all in about 8 minutes!  If you’re on Facebook, like us (NorthwestWineNight) and on Twitter, follow us (@NWWineNight).  Be sure to use tonight’s hashtags:  #CorkLocal  #Merlot  #ObamaSmooth  #DontBeHatinEd
