We're nearing the time for Spring Barrel tasting in the Yakima valley on April 25-27th.
Having done this last year, it is loads of fun to go around, find (and taste) fine wines you want, and buy them at a discount.
The lowdown is simple-- you pay $20 (advance price) and pick up a lanyard/ticket. Then, any time between 4/25-4/27, you can visit as many of the 50 participating wineries, sample their spring barrels, and any other vintages they have available for sale, sample delicious cheese, sauces, salsas, desserts.
Find out more at the Wine Yakima Valley
website, and if this sounds remotely interesting, book a room at our hotel, the Richland Marriott
If you end up booking it, then drop me a note and tell me you'll be there. At a minimum, we can get together and enjoy a glass of wine at a local winery, or if we get enough people to make an event of it, I'll book a limo/minibus/minivan and we can all travel in style!
