(VIDEO) Episode 211 – “Back To School With Ru”

(2018)  Some have been back in class for weeks, while others are just heading back to school.  And parents everywhere are celebrating (hopefully with a glass of wine)!

We mark the start of the school year with a couple of bottles of Northwest-made Syrah, at the head of the class.  And there are a few tears shed as we recall our summer vacation memories.  Ok, we’re only crying because we’re laughing so hard!  You’ll have fun too as we go to Disneyland with Donald Glover, and Reno with Rupaul.  Can you guess who we’re going to Hawaii with?  You’re gonna have to watch to find the answer.

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 10 minutes! The idea is to encourage you to try these two wines, and support our Pacific Northwest winemakers.  If you’re on Facebook, like us (NorthwestWineNight).
