Harvest is coming in Walla Walla!
August is here. Wow! This year has been moving so quickly that I can’t believe it! Days and weeks fly by and our momentum keeps pushing forward too. I promise you I will not stop or slow down until Eternal Wines and Drink Washington State are household names. On that note I am on the road again every weekend in August. I guess that’s why Jon Wells of Walla Walla Wine Limo named myself the hardest working man in wine. I am excited to announce a couple new spots that you can find our wines in West Seattle: Phoenecia, which is right on the water and Ephesus which is a Quaint Turkish eatery with amazing food.
We just had our wine club appreciation party Seeing Red! What a blast as we had fresh fruit, meat and cheese plates, as well as a candy “bar”. Our best dressed winner for the night was Jeremy Eubanks who won a 2014 Cockburn Ranch Syrah and a 2016 Eternal Heritage barrel sample. In addition to this, we opened EVERY SINGLE WINE WE PRODUCED! It was fun to taste past favorites along with the new ones! If you missed out on this wine club only event, well don’t miss out on the next one.
Our Enjoy Walla Walla Carmenere is now SOLD OUT and our Chardonnay and Grenache Blanc are now almost in the same boat. As a small producer, we urge you to pick up a couple bottles as they will not last much longer. You can order wines here.
We will continue to have live music at least once a week for the summer. Ivan Huera, Robert Gomez, AKA Zemog Otrebor, and Clarice Swanson are now on regular rotation in the tasting room as their unique styles make them local favorites. Free live music will be playing 5:30-7:30pm. Just a reminder that we always offer $5 glass pours of our Drink Washington State white wines, Eternal Beauty Rose and Sangrias!
There are so many fun events coming up in the tasting room in addition to live music. We have a pole dancing fitness class hosted by Jacki who won the 2015 pole dancing championship. As always, our events are completely free! There will also be a live poetry and spoken word event on the 26th.
I had a great time with the Whitman Tennis Camp as I poured for a dinner at the community college. Chef Dan Thiessen created a great 6 course meal that I am still dreaming about! Pouring at Vintage Spokane and the Snoqualmie Wine walk were both huge successes as our message is spreading!
I will be pouring at some really cool events this month. If you are in Spokane, Walla Walla, Prosser, or Seattle stop by and say hello!
