In today’s episode, we give a nod to Shelley’s 50th High School Reunion by drinking a wine that was very popular back when she went to high school, Blue Nun! Remember back in the day?  These days, Blue Nun has transitioned away from Liebfraumilch wines in recent years, and now focuses on producing wines from a variety of grape varieties.

Happy 50th High School reunion, Shelley, and #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime! #Cheersing #BlueFriday #GoLions
