(VIDEO) Episode 218 – Do you ‘Believe’ you’re ‘Strong Enough?’

(2018)  Because we love and adore her, we dedicate this episode to the one and only #Cher (and of course, offer her an invitation to come drink wine with us anytime).

Using her songbook of the past five decades, we ask our stars to re-name the wines they’re drinking using the titles from #Cher songs.  Creativity and hilarity come alive as we re-name a couple of bottles of Northwest-made Merlot.  We’ll help you channel your inner-diva just like one of our panelists did, with vino that made him say he #FeelsLikeALady.

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).
