The weather reports are in and it looks like the Pacific Northwest will have fabulous weather on Friday!
A mere $30 buys you at least two wines from 10 different local wineries. Juried artists from both Mercer Island and the Seattle area will have a selection of fine handmade artwork:
Along with wine and art, there will be food trucks and music. A portion of the proceeds from this evening will benefit the scholarship programs of the Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce and Mercer Island Visual Arts League.
Wines poured will be available for purchase on-site, with a 10 percent discount.
Happy Wine Wednesday! Pour yourself a nice, big glass as you wait for the web to load!
August is Washington Wine Month and you know I’m going to celebrate!
We started off our Washington Wine Month with a bottle of the 2011 Sundance red blend from Soos Creek Wine Cellars (Columbia Valley). Here’s the blend: 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 15% Syrah, and and 13% Cabernet Franc. Delicious. And only $20 per bottle.
To continue the celebrations, Brandon and I are headed to Woodinville to taste some fine Washington wines and this next weekend. (I love Woodinville! Read more here, here, here and more!)
Here are some of our favorite Woodinville wineries, in alphabetical order so no feelings get hurt. Maybe I’ll see you over in Woodinville this weekend?!
We love all of their wines — both reds, whites and roses! Go! Taste! And tell Jeff & Sheila hello for us!
Ditto with Davenport. Their wines are great and the tasting room is a work of art. Enjoy!
These Spanish-style wines are spicy and wonderful. We like the Shya Red and the riesling.
Robert Ramsay Cellars
We discovered this winery through a Living Social deal and we have gone back every time since! Their spicy Rhone-style wines are right up my alley and definitely don’t disappoint!
Silver Lake Winery
The Roza Red blend is one of my favorites! It’s only $12/bottle.
The same wine makers as Covington Cellars, Two Vintners makes great wines, especially their Zin, my favorite!
Cheers to Washington wines! (Yes, that’s a working wood-fired oven in the background!!)
