(VIDEO) Episode 231 – Topless Tapas & Tempranillo

(2019)  Be careful, if you say the title of this episode quickly three times, you may get into a little trouble!

This week’s frivolity with wine revolves around  a couple of bottles of Northwest-made Tempranillo.  This Spanish-style grape is delicious, and just saying the varietal gets us talking about tapas, and somehow, it gets more fun from there.  We explore different types of kisses that get us laughing so hard, we have to fight hard not to spill our wine!

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).  If you’re on Twitter, follow us (@NWWineNight) and you can find us on Instagram as well (NorthwestWineNight).


Remember, this is a blind-tasting, so if you don’t want to know the wines featured on the show…STOP READING HERE! After the show, come back & see the names of both the “Wine Orange” &  the “Wine Blue” tasted on this episode.
