What a difference a month makes. WOW!
Last month we thought we were gearing up for a great concert and food truck concert series. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 virus has us in Washington State with shelter in place. Thinking ahead, even if the restrictions were lifted say at the end of April, they still would have a cap on large parties I would assume. In light of these times, we are postponing the opening night of the Thursday night lights series until 5/14/20. This is, of course, not set in stone as we all wait and see daily.
We are reacting to the isolation by offering a virtual tasting package with the winemaker. This is a 3 pack of wine: 1- 2018 Eternal Sunshine Viognier, 1- 2016 Eternal Rocket Man Red and 1 Eternal Zen Syrah. Don’t isolate without our wine special: $99 plus free shipping. Then once you receive the wines, we will schedule a one-on-one virtual tasting session. We will taste these wines together and have some good new-fashioned fun!
Let me brag on these wines for a second, in case you haven’t tasted them yet. There is a reason I selected these wines. Our Eternal Sunshine Viognier was recently voted best in PNW by “Sip Northwest Magazine”. Our Rocket Man Red was just rated 96 points by “SavorNW”, and earned Double Gold in their annual competition. Lastly, our Eternal Zen was featured in America’s best Syrah’s issue in “Wine & Spirits Magazine”.
In light of our tasting room being closed for tastings, I will be holding weekly virtual tastings on our social media pages: Facebook (Drink Washington State & Eternal Wines) and Instagram (Eternal Wines). These will be held on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 3:00 pm PST starting this Thursday, April 2. Please join in with questions and share a bottle that you are drinking with us.
I have been keeping very busy in the winery as we needed to rack and bottle prep our Drink Washington State 2015 and 2016 barrels. That is 70 barrels in all, which equates to 1750 cases when bottled! Next up is labeling the wines we didn’t have labels for when we were bottling them. And when I finish those I get to box and ship out everyone’s wine club shipment! This is truly something I look forward to as it marks a new adventure, new wines, and new experiences ahead.
