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!

A Visit to Eternal Wines and Drink Washington State

The complete article is found here.

By Dan Clarke

In the matter of tasting wines, the bell curve comes to mind.

In my own version of this theory, about 90% of what you taste is just . . . wine.

Certainly, some examples are better than others, but this large category doesn’t lend itself to instant judgements. Enough concentration is necessary to analyze and rate these wines to nearly rob any pleasure from the exercise. It’s easier on the fringes, where maybe 5% of what you taste is lousy and another 5% really lights up your day. A wine from that latter category led to my meeting Brad Binko.
