In this episode of “Brown Bag Wine Tasting”, William Shatner sits down with his Twitter nemesis, CW’s “Supernatural’s” very own Misha Collins. Misha talks about his charity work and what it’s like to play a TV archangel before the two enjoy some mystery wine together…if only William could remember Misha’s name! The hilarious interview that is going viral ends in a headlock. (links below)
At the end of the interview, Shatner passes Collins a brown bag hiding the mystery wine and asks the actor to describe what he tastes in “Supernatural”, un-normalcy and impractical terms. Misha describes the wine as “waft of amphibian, a primordial sacrifice” like Aztecs. He adds, “In the mouth of the wine, it’s tasting like the blood of infidel.” Mischa adds the chardonnay has a “nice, abnormal, abhorrent, deviant finish […] There’s a tom tom to it, anarchistic and delicious.”
The new Ora TV web series “Brown Bag Wine Tasting” follows Shatner’s adventures as he asks willing participants to blindly taste wine and describe it in terms of their occupations, with the goal of making the show fun, interactive and a social experience. The series was created out of Shatner’s love of wine and conversation, as well as wanting to have a fun wine tasting experience in an entertaining format. “I’m using wine as a way to explore the psyche of each of my guests,” William Shatner, the legendary Star Trek captain explains. The original series is executive produced by Shatner and Scott Sternberg who will continue in his role as the series expands with Ora TV with the addition of Ora TV executive producers, Allison Glader and Jason Rovou.
