ZILLAH, Sept. 9, 2010


8:45AM. Meet at Starbucky’s off Queensgate by Target.
Park out away from the store. If you want coffee, get there earlier so we can all leave at 9am. Be sure to have cash & gas in your car before arriving. If you want to meet up with us later, I can send you the itinerary ahead of time.

Caravan to Zillah & get off at exit 54. Go to the Teapot for a QUICK photo op @ 9:45.
10am Cultura Winery with Tad & Sarah
11am Silver Lakes
1pm Hyatt (Carrie)
or Bonair
2pm Piety Flats
or head home
Back to Starbuckys by 3.

If any of you have to leave early, be sure to ride with people that have the same schedule. Designated drivers sip & dump.
As always, bring an appetizer to share, a water bottle, walking shoes, & cooler for your wine. It’s always good to bring ca$h in case you want to go in on a case with others.
For our newbie’s, if you’d like to learn tasting etiquette or touring tips, go to our other blog Women Who Wine WA (click on title)
RSVP so we can organize drivers ahead of time and let wineries know how many to expect. Thank you!

Our First Release Party!

We were all looking in different directions :)
What a wonderful night we had. The view was outstanding, the food amazing, and the wine was spectacular!!! Thank you so much to our host winery Tapteil, and the duo "Blue Mountain Spanish Sound" for a delightful evening.

What a great culmination of events this evening was. For most of us it was our very first taste of our Bella Vino Super Tuscan Blend 2008 . A journey that for some of us started two years ago with maybe a dozen gals. Now we are boasting a loose membership of over 63 women. Who knows what is next for this amazing bunch of ladies who are out to explore the wine and the wine regions surrounding our home town base of Tri Cities, in eastern Washington. This winter we had an offer we couldn't refuse when John Gabriel proposed to help us custom blend and bottle our very own barrel of wine. John the wine maker helped walk us through a fun day, tasting and sipping, and blending from nine barrels of his amazing wine he had stored at Kestrel's. After the process of blending our wine, we met up at a later date to bottle the wine. Thanks to the gracious hospitality of Coyote Canyon who allowed us the use of their facility.
