Cooper Wine Company 6/15/10

Red Mountain Tour

A beautiful (cool & sunny) day in Red Mountain started with a tasting at Masquerade. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we forgot to take pictures! We have another excuse to go back again for more Sparkling Wine, Gewurztraminer, and Malbec (and hit a few golf balls while we're at it). Thanks to Bill & Jennifer Kimmerly for opening up just for us.

Our second stop was the new COOPER. Neil and D.B. Cooper greeted us outside and then showed us the new digs - all spiffed up and ready to show off his awesome wines. We can hardly wait until we can buy them.

Third stop was at Eve & Ed Shaw's Portrait Cellars. Ed was somewhere buying some new winery toys and missed out on a wonderful lunch and tasting. Eve sneaked us down into the cellar to try the newest Riesling and Cab that will be bottled in the next few weeks. We will want some of THAT, too!

Our last stop was to Linda Andrew's Art & Glass Studio. We were in awe of all the techniques she uses. See for yourself in these photos. A very successful day in Red Mountain.....

Have fun on your vacations and we'll see you on August 13.
