Happy New Year!
2017 was an amazing year for us! It brought many accolades including 1 of 5 wineries to watch by SIP Northwest, and over 100 awards including golds in San Francisco, and Seattle. We were included in the Seattle Times 50 best under 30$. We opened a new winery and second tasting room in Walla Walla and started to expand our Drink Washington State line. And a HUGE thanks to YOU! We can’t do what we do here without you. Your support through sharing on social media, or in person in the tasting room is amazing!
So what will 2018 bring us? While awaiting scores from several publications and results from several competitions, there is one thing I do know for certain. Our Spring release will be delicious again, including many 2 barrel lots such as our Eternal Passion, our reserve offering from 2015. This consists of 1 barrel Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1 barrel Walla Walla Syrah. Both are done in 100% new French oak. Our Eternal Beauty rose, and Eternal Perspective Grenache Blanc will be back. We will also be introducing a wine club only Cabernet Franc, only 1 barrel produced!
We are having a locals/Industry grand opening party Tuesday, January 16th at our airport location (602 Piper Ave). 5-8pm. Food will be available from Grandma Tamales and we will feature live music as well. We will also be debuting our industry wine club program! I will be pouring 5 wines at Capri Cellars in Issaquah, WA on Jan 11th. Hopefully this will be following a successful trip to Tampa, Jacksonville, and Charleston as we try to get more distribution to the South East US.
Our 2016 Eternal Sunshine Viognier is sold out. Thanks for making it an instant classic! We are running very low on Eternal Darkness Syrah, and Eternal Heritage Syrah. Our downtown tasting room will continue to be open Wed-Sun and our airport location Fri & Sat.
Ivan Huera, Mari Gisele, Clarice Swanson and Robert Gomez, AKA Zemog Otrebor, are all back in the tasting room as their unique styles make them local favorites. Free live music is from 5:30-7:30pm.
