(VIDEO) Episode 234 – Wine That Woos, Bears That Hug

(2019)  Do you enjoy a good “bear” hug with your glass of wine?  Perhaps you’re more of the “buddy” hug type, or maybe just a “polite” hug.

Yes, there’s lots of hugging going on this week as we taste a couple of bottles of Northwest-made Red Blend.  The panelists are challenged to compare their wine to a favorite type of hug, and as you might imagine, there’s a little more love in the room when wine is involved.  So, hang on to your pic-a-nic baskets, this episode might even make Yogi blush!

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.
