Sip & Spin, Episode 3: XOBC Cellars BC Cabernet

Country Queer’s Sip & Spin video series (“You can’t pair a wine with an album…can you?”) returns with Episode 3: XOBC Cellars BC Cabernet Sauvignon.

Music journalist Aimsel Ponti is joined by wine expert Liz Rubin on a journey to discover the best pairing for BC Cab, produced by Brandi Carlile’s wine label, XOBC Cellars. After Liz gives Aimsel a taste of this complex wine, she challenges the host to find the perfect Brandi album to go with it.

This episode of Sip & Spin is currently available exclusively to Country Queer readers. In conjunction with this series, we’re giving away prizes (including a stainless steel Sip & Spin “water” bottle) to all new email subscribers.

Be sure to check out Epiisode 1 and Episode 2 if you haven’t already!
