Wine Tasting Dinner: Washington Single Vineyard Red Blends

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Oftentimes, wineries in the United States produce blends from their leftovers. They put their best grapes into their varietal wines and then produce a blend from the grapes that don’t quite make the cut. There are some wineries, however, who strive to produce Bordeaux-style blends using the very best grapes that they can get. Over […]

Wine Tasting Dinner: Brut Sparkling Wine

Wine Tasting Dinner: Washington Syrah 2006 [Wow! Alert]

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Earlier this year, we featured Washington Syrah from the 2005 vintage in one of our monthly wine tasting dinners.

There are as many different types of wine parties as there are wines. For some people, it can be intimidating to know how to plan a wine party. At a recent wine auction party at the home of our good friends, Darren and Mardee, I was talking with another guest who wanted to plan a […]

Wine Tasting Dinner: Washington Pinot Gris

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Last Friday was a cold, dark, and rainy fall evening here in Seattle, not exactly perfect weather for crisp, refreshing white wines. Nevertheless, we wanted to feature Washington Pinot Gris in one of our monthly wine tasting dinners and simply ran out of summer months to do it. So we just turned up the heat […]
