Friday Night Flights

Saturday Afternoon Samplers
Drop by, belly up to the bar, and enjoy a selection of new arrivals and old favorites from visiting winemakers, local distributors or our own favorites off the shelves. Our Saturday Samplers run from 2p - 5p and are always FREE!
Yes they do exist and from real appellations and wineries too! Closeout buys and otherwise from Napa, Sonoma, Alexander Valley and Paso Robles. A good reminder (or primer) of regional and style differences. Markham, Gundlach Bundschu, Hanna and Broadside.
Planted in 1973, Red Willow Vineyard is one of Washington’s oldest vineyards and along with DuBrul, widely considered the best in Yakima Valley. In addition to the old vines, it is also Yakima’s coolest site and extremely rocky. This combination leads to perfect conditions for a long, even growing season and complex, age-worthy soil-driven wines. While DuBrul can be flashy in its youth, Red Willow benefits from time in the bottle. So, let’s go back a decade and take a look! Six wines, $30
