(VIDEO) Episode 219 – Wine Botches & Blockbusters

(2018)   This time of year, the weather is likely making us long for the warmer days of the past summer.  So with wine in hand, we take you back to some fun summer memories at the movies!

As we taste a couple of bottles of Northwest-made Red Blend, we talk about the big movies from the last year the wine reminds us of.  We’re not sure if it was the wine or what, but we talk a lot about #Leather after deducing most of our stars didn’t take in the biggest movies of the year.  So, we make fun of them!  But one of the stars plays along SO well, we actually had to issue a #SpoilerAlert.

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).
