Sip & Spin, Episode 4: XOBC Cellars Lonely Painter Pinot Gris

You can’t pair a wine with an album…can you? Country Queer’s Sip & Spin video series takes another shot at answering that question with Episode 4: XOBC Cellars Lonely Painter Pinot Gris (a wine inspired by none other than Joni Mitchell!)

Join host Aimsel Ponti and her guest, wine expert Liz Rubin, as they search for the perfect Brandi Carlile album to pair with Lonely Painter, produced by Carlile’s wine label, XOBC Cellars.

This episode of Sip & Spin is 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.
