Hi Bacchus,

Thomas Jefferson observed: "No nation was ever drunk when wine was cheap."

I wonder which wine would get his vote: Clinton Vineyards or Trump Winery? If only he could join us on Facebook this Sunday when we host a live video taste-off ;)

Live Video: Clinton versus Trump Wine Debate?

We’re going to have a live video taste-off between wines from Clinton Vineyards and Trump Winery.

******** Join us here on Facebook Live Video this Sunday at 6 pm EDT *********

You can watch even if you’re not a Facebook member.

Mark your calendar, grab a glass of wine (red, white or booze), and join the fun!
