Pole Dancing Fitness Class, 90 pt scores, Gold medals and more

Greetings from sunny Walla Walla,

 

July is here and so is the heat. We now see daily temperatures in the 90’s. The vines are growing higher and higher towards the sun daily, and we are starting to think about harvest perpetration.   June was a great month for us as we continued to grow our wine club and award list.

 

We will continue to have live music at least once a week for the summer. Ivan Huera and Robert Gomez, AKA Zemog Otrebor, are now on regular rotation in the tasting room as their unique styles make them local favorites. Live music will be playing 5:30-7:30pm. Just a reminder that we always offer $5 glass pours of our Drink Washington State white wines, Eternal Beauty Rose and Sangrias!

 

Our Eternal Perspective Grenache Blanc is on fire! Last month it won 2 gold medals (Washington Wine Comp, Walla Walla Comp.), a double gold (Seattle Wine Awards) and 2 90 point scores (WWB, IWR)! We only made 42 cases of this and it’s been going fast! Only $30 a bottle, and available for shipping.

 

We have a lot of really fun events coming up in the tasting room in addition to live music. We have a pole dancing fitness class hosted by Jacki who won the 2015 pole dancing championship. There will also be a live poetry and spoken word event in August. In addition, we will also be having a wine club member party. Stay tuned for more on this if you are in the Good Vibes Club.

 

I also just posted my latest interview with Dan at Taste Washington Travel. He stopped by the tasting room to discuss awards, future goals, and meet our winery dog Picasso. Click here to see this interview and others.

 

I will be pouring at some really cool events this month. If you are in Spokane, Walla Walla, or Seattle stop by and say hello!

Hello my friends,

I can’t believe how fast time is flying! Vines are already growing to 3-5 inches tall! I have continued to be on the road most weekends. Click here to view our current placements. Spring Release was a huge success and I want to thank all of you for sending people our way, talking about us and coming in to taste the newest releases. We are currently pouring 8 wines on the Eternal Wine side, 5 on the Drink Washington State side and rose sangrias! It’s pretty awesome to come in and see the current line up as it is a mixture of all 3 vintages (2014-2016).

 

We have a lot of great events coming up at the tasting room. Ivan Huera will be playing on Friday 5/19 from 5:30-7:30pm. The following week on Saturday, Robert Gomez will be playing 5:30-7:30pm. Just a reminder that we always offer $5 glass pours of our Drink Washington State white wines, Eternal Beauty Rose and Sangrias!

Our Drink Washington State line just received great scores from the Washington Wine Blog. Enjoy Walla Walla Carmenere scored 90 points while the Groovin on Wahluke Slope was awarded 89. I just finished an interview with them about both of my labels. Stay tuned for that.

Speaking of interviews, I have been doing a lot of them lately. I just finished an interview with Jon Wells of Walla Walla wine limos and one with Great Northwest talk radio. Click here to see these interviews and see other accolades.

 

I will be pouring at some really cool events this month. If you are in Spokane, Prosser, Walla Walla or Seattle stop by and say hello!
