Eternal Wines and Drink Washington State Have a New Home

September 3rd, 2017 — For Immediate Release: Eternal Wines and Drink Washington State have a new home, and a return to the airport.

Since the first harvest in 2014 for Eternal and Drink Washington State, Brad Binko has moved his production each year. “This is huge for us! We will finally be able to have all our production, case storage, and equipment under one roof.” Each year they have also increased production to keep up with the demands of their customers, and this will allow them room to grow.

The incubators are a set of 5 units owned by the Port of Walla Walla that were designed to help new wineries take off. There is a maximum of 6 years that you are allowed to stay there. The rent starts low and increases each year essentially pushing you out the door.

Brad said they plan on keeping the downtown tasting room, located at 9 S 1st Avenue in Walla Walla, and will open the tasting room at the airport in the spring of 2018. The incubator that they will be moving into is currently hosting Burwood brewery. That brewery is about to move into their new facility, which was custom built for their needs, just down the street.

Brad Binko, who is also a certified Sommelier, graduated from the Enology and Viticulture program in June, 2016. Eternal Wines is focused on single vineyard Rhone varietals, while Drink Washington State is focused on blends from Washington and is AVA specific. They have received numerous awards and 90 point scores, along with being named “Wines Next Generation” by the Seattle Times and “1 of 5 Wineries to watch in Washington” by SIP Northwest.

The tasting room hours downtown are Thursday through Saturday 12-8pm, and Sunday through Wednesday 12-7pm. They feature live music at least once a week. For more information you can visit www.EternalWine.com or www.DrinkWashington.wine or call (509) 240-6258.

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.

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.
