(2019 – Season 8 Finale) If you couldn’t tell from the title of this episode, there’s some dancing on the show tonight. And why not? Good wine always equals a good time!
As we taste a couple of bottles of Northwest-made Gewurztraminer, we play our own fun version of Match Game (complete with the best audience chant of “How big is it?” ever). The stars as asked to label their wines as a dance. There’s some hustle, a twerk or two, and someone even does the “YMCA.”
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 the same wines, and support our local producers! If you’re on Facebook, like us (NorthwestWineNight).
