Wow! The recent response to our tasting room has been amazing. We will continue to be open 7 days a week. We all are in the same box these times, balancing safety vs. needs. We will continue to focus on you! Everything is getting whipped down after tasters and menus are now one time use only. You already know that for the last 2 years we pump ozone through the winery on both sides. We do low levels during the day and heavier levels when we are away. We do this every night to clean the total environment. On top of that we continue to provide you alkaline water in our tasting room complementary. We are a firm believers in you are what you put into your body. This is why we have offered these services for free for the last 2 years. We offer continued commitment to you.
Now lets talk about wine! We have our webinar on Eternal Lust Albarino today at 4pm. I will talk with 3 amazing people who contribute not only to the success of Eternal but the success of Washington Wine as a whole. I will be joined by Sean Tudor, Michael Blackard, and Tim Norris. We will discuss everything that went into making this amazing wine! If you haven’t tasted this wine yet, you are not alone we just released it a couple weeks ago in anticipation of the tasting webinar series. To put the cherry on the top it just won double gold in the Seattle Wine Awards and rated 90 points by Wine Enthusiast. To register for the webinar click here.
Can’t make this one? No problem we do a live tasting webinar the last Sunday of every month at 4pm PST. The next one is going to be on July 26th. This will be on our 2016 Eternal Discovery Cabernet Sauvignon. Register here.
We are continuing to be open 7 days a week 11-5pm. We do welcome walk ins but recommend reservations so we make sure to have a socially distant table for your group. We also continue to offer beer and cider by the bottle 7 days a week. There are many reasons to come in a one of our fan favorites is making waves too. Our Eternal Perspective Grenache Blanc was just rated 90 points by Sean Sullivan at Wine Enthusiast and received gold in the Seattle Wine Awards.
My travels are still very much slowed but I will be in Bellingham to judge the Bellingham wine awards soon. This is the first time I have been on the judging side of one of these events and I’m excited to contribute to an already great event. A great event, which I have poured at the last couple of years, which unfortunately the tasting part was cancelled due to COVID this year.
Picasso’s winery 13th birthday party was cancelled but his party at my house was fun. Following in tradition him and Chloe both ate steaks with us! Picasso stated that the vineyards are looking good this year and Chloe and him will continue to monitor them going forward. Because remember if it isn’t Picasso (and Chloe) approved we don’t want it!
