Eternal Wines, Drink Washington State to open downtown tasting room

With two brands from one new winery, it didn’t take long for Brad Binko to outgrow his space at the Airport District.

Just in time for Fall Release, he’s launching his new tasting room downtown.

Eternal Wines and Drink Washington State have moved to 9 S. First Ave., the former spot for Palencia Winery’s tasting room.

Thursday through Sunday the spot will open for the release of five new wines, including a fortified syrah and a 2-year-old barrel-aged Roussanne, Binko said in an announcement.

A certified sommelier, Binko graduated from the Enology & Viticulture program at Walla Walla Community College last June then launched his own winery with two new labels.

Eternal Wines focuses on single-vineyard Rhone varietals, while Drink Washington State is designed to raise awareness of Washington wines and the state’s American Viticultural Areas.

For more information visit EternalWine.com or DrinkWashington.wine or call 240-6258.

Blushing Actor-Vintner Kyle MacLachlan

Posted: May 5, 2016 -Read the full Original Article Here

It’s starting to look like Brad Pitt‘s and Angelina Jolie‘s Miraval rosé was ahead of the curve: Celebrity rosés are leading the way as the trend to watch in 2016, at least here on the pop culture–obsessed pages of Unfiltered. Last week we broke the news that Drew Barrymore was going pink, and now we can confirm that Pursued by Bear‘s Kyle MacLachlan will be blushing this spring.

But don’t let the “celebrity rosé” tag fool you: The Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet star has plenty of wine cred. He’s been collaborating on Pursued by Bear with Walla Walla Valley’s Dunham Cellars for the past 10 years. The project (which takes its cheeky name from a stage direction, “Exit, pursued by bear,” in Shakespeare‘s The Winter’s Tale) grew out of a friendship with the late Eric Dunham, who MacLachlan told Unfiltered was “a supernice guy and someone I felt I could work with, and he felt the same way.” Now MacLachlan is adding Blushing Bear rosé to his lineup, a Cinsault and Grenache blend of Washington grapes.
