Labor Day just happens to mark the beginning of harvest too.
This last month was crazy busy as we transitioned into just 1 spot in Walla Walla. Our winery is open Wednesdays-Sundays 11-5pm, and Mondays and Tuesdays by appointment. In addition, we are preparing for harvest. The fruit is coming along nicely, and I am excited to see what the 2019 harvest will look like!
After perusing our Carmenere this last week, I am looking forward to having our Drink Washington State Carmenere sourced from Walla Walla again. I love Carmenere and if you don’t know a lot about it don’t worry. I went to Chile to study the grape and produced a documentary. It’s an easy 20 minutes, so grab your favorite Carmenere and sit back and enjoy! Link here.
Our Customer Appreciation party with Naughty Pine, The Shop Singers, Daniel Mauer and The Silence was fun. The Fiasco Pizza Food Truck was tasty as always. That was the last concert at the INK for this year since harvest is about to start in a week or so.
Fall release emails will be going out soon to wine club members. Keep an eye out for this as you will be able to log in and adjust your orders if needed.
Our single vineyard Syrahs continue to impress. They were just reviewed by “Wine & Spirits” magazine. Our Eternal Darkness Syrah from Cockburn Ranch was rated 91 points while our Les Collines Eternal Zen Syrah came in at 92! Both these wines were also reviewed by “Washington Wine Blog” and rated 91 each. Come grab one of these small lot Syrah bottlings before we’re SOLD OUT. Speaking of sold out, we only have 3 cases of our 2018 Eternal Bliss Fortified Syrah left. Don’t miss out on this age-worthy wine.
